The complementary judgment matrix (CJM) method is an MCDA (multicriteria decision aiding) method based on pairwise comparisons. As in AHP, the decision-maker (DM) can specify his/her preferences using pairwise comparisons, both between different criteria and between different alternatives with respect to each criterion. The DM specifies his/her preferences by allocating two nonnegative comparison values so that their sum is 1. We measure and pinpoint possible inconsistency by inconsistency errors. We also compare the consistency of CJM and AHP trough simulation. Because preference judgments are always more or less imprecise or uncertain, we introduce a way to represent the uncertainty through stochastic distributions, and a computational method to treat the uncertainty. As in Stochastic Multicriteria Acceptability Analysis (SMAA), we consider different uncertainty levels: precise comparisons, imprecise comparisons with a stochastic distribution, and missing comparisons between criteria. We compute rank acceptability indices for the alternatives, describing the probability of an alternative to obtain a given rank considering the level of uncertainty and study the influence of the uncertainty on the SMAA-CJM results. ...

Using uncertain preferential information from stakeholders to assess the acceptability of alternative forest management plans Eyvindson, Kyle; Öhman, Karin; Nordström, Eva‐Maria (John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2018)In forest management planning, participatory planning processes are often encouraged as a means to acquire relevant information and to enhance the stakeholders' acceptability of alternative plans. This requires the aggregation ...
Kemell, Kai-Kristian; Ventilä, Eveliina; Kettunen, Petri; Mikkonen, Tommi (Springer, 2019)It is commonly claimed that the initial stages of any startup business are dominated by continuous, extended uncertainty, in an environment that has even been described as chaotic. Consequently, decisions are made in ...
Long-term impacts of increased timber harvests on ecosystem services and biodiversity : A scenario study based on national forest inventory data Blattert, Clemens; Lemm, Renato; Thürig, Esther; Stadelmann, Golo; Brändli, Urs-Beat; Temperli, Christian (Elsevier BV, 2020)The transition to a climate-neutral economy is expected to increase future timber demands and endanger the multifunctionality of forests. National scenario analyses are needed to determine long-term forest management impacts ...
Practitioners’ Perceptions of Co-Product Allocation Methods in Biorefinery Development : A Case Study of the Austrian Pulp and Paper Industry Wenger, Julia; Pichler, Stefan; Näyhä, Annukka; Stern, Tobias (MDPI AG, 2022)The utilization of coproducts is a strategy that can be applied to increase the economic and environmental performance of industrial processes and thus reach an objective targeted in several environmental policies.
