Given the matter of the diversities within the dimension degrees of the variables used for economic-ecological modelling, multicriteria equipment capable of take care of combined info (both qualitative and quantitative measurements) might be thought of fairly beneficial. one other challenge on the topic of the on hand info matters the uncertainty (stochastic and/or fuzzy) contained during this info.
