Currently (beta version), the software limits are the following:

  • 10 000 actions,
  • 10 000 criteria,
  • 100 groups, categories and clusters,
  • 100 000 evaluations,
  • 10 scenarios.

These limits are not inherent to the methodology and can be lifted if necessary.


  • Larger numbers of criteria are more difficult to analyze and can lead to redundant information. The PROMETHEE Software partly adresses this problem and makes sensitivity analyses easier by allowing to define groups of criteria and clusters.
  • The quality (Delta) of the GAIA plane can be very low when the size of the problem is larger. Again this can be partly adressed by grouping criteria.
