Basically, it tries to judge the assering Ful ¨ op tion that alternative Ai outranks alternative A j by 40 using a concordance and a discordance index. The concordance index c i,j is defined as the sum of all weights of those criteria where the score of Ai is at least as high as the score of A j and measures the advantages of Ai over A j , neglecting the disadvantages. The discordance index di,j is somewhat more complex. It equals 0, if Ai performs better than A j in all criteria and has a high value, if Ai is clearly inferior to A j in at least one criterion.
