Abstract

The multi-actor multi-criteria analysis (MAMCA) is a methodology that enables the evaluation of different options by including explicitly the goals of the stakeholders. The MAMCA method has already proven its effectiveness in evaluating complex sustainable mobility and transport policy decisions in many past and currently ongoing research projects.
The MAMCA can be seen as an extension of the traditional multi criteria analysis methods. In the eighties and nineties, many of these methods were already extended towards a group decision support setting. For instance, the PROMETHEE and the analytical hierarchy process (AHP) methods have been extended in former research projects. Within GDSS, the idea was to come as a group to a decision and for the whole group common criteria set was used. Within the MAMCA we use for each stakeholder group a specific criteria set. In this paper, we show how PROMETHEE and AHP were adapted to come to a multi actor view and which extra visualizations were created in order to allow for a better analysis. A newly developed MAMCA software, an interactive web tool, will be shown together with several applications in the field of transport appraisal.
