Abstract

The selection of the appropriate computer‐aided software engineering (CASE) tools to suit the needs of an organization requires the systematic application of the multi‐criteria decision methodology (MCDM). In order to make a case for the use of MCDM, the application of the ELECTRE I method to the selection of CASE tools from a possible set of six alternatives is demonstrated. The demonstration helps in gaining a grasp of the MCDM approach and the ELECTRE I method. There is potential for the application of the MCDM approach in other software engineering decisions, especially in the feasibility analysis of the systems life cycle. 1991 Decision Sciences Institute
