Abstract

Multi criteria decision making methods are decision support systems guiding decision makers in real life problems. The SWARA Method is one of the multi criteria decision making methods proposed in the literature. Many changes, additional steps or mathematical operations have been added to proposed multi criteria decision methods. SWARA Method is also one of the methods that have changed in various ways. However, many studies have not provided any information on these changes. In this study, the changes/variations implemented in the steps of the method were evaluated and an application was practised with another multi criteria decision making method, SMAA-2. As a result of the application, it was observed that the criterion weights and alternative choices have changed.
