Multi Actor Multi Criteria Analysis
Edited by Cathy Macharis and Gino Baudry
Chapter 2: When to use Multi Actor Multi Criteria Analysis or other evaluation methods?
The aim of this chapter is to develop a decision tree for the ex ante evaluation of transport projects to guide decision makers in choosing the most appropriate evaluation method(s). First, the authors identify the differences between the main objectives and characteristics of a number of evaluation methods, Operational Research (OR) as well as non-OR methods, such as Multi Criteria Analysis (MCA), Cost-Effectiveness Analysis (CEA), Social Cost-Benefit Analysis (SCBA) and other methods. We provide the (OR) Community with insights on how MCA relates to non-OR methodologies, and attempt to structure the complexity of the ex ante evaluation process of transport (and other) projects.
