IMOST

IMOST: Interactive multiple objective system technique An interactive multiple objective system technique (IMOST) is investigated to improve the flexibility and robustness of multiple objective decision making (MODM) methodologies. The interactive concept provides a learning process about the system, whereby the decision maker can learn to recognize good solutions, the relative importance of factors in the system, and then design a high-productivity and zero-buffer system instead of optimizing a given system. This interactive technique provides integration-oriented, adaptation and dynamic learning features by considering all possibilities of a specific domain of MODM problems which are integrated in logical order. It encompasses the decision-making processes of formulating problems, constructing a model, solving the model, testing/examining its solution, and improving/reshaping the model and its solution in a specific problem domain. Although IMOST deals with multiple objective programming problems, it also provides some valuable orientation of integrated system methodologies.
