Survey of solving multi-attribute decision problems

Finding the optimal solution of a Multi-Attribute Decision Problem (MADP) is a key problem for electronic commerce systems. In this paper, we formally define the multi-attribute decision problem, and we report our survey of four different methods (soft-CSP framework, multi-attribute decision theory, CP-network, and Heuristic strategies) which potentially could be used to solve the MADP, and their advantages and disadvantages will be discussed respectively.
