Hello Bertrand, Evaluate monthly my actual suppliers is a similar task to select the best supplier. The only difference is that this is done constantly and we need a historical data to see how the suppliers are evolving. I saw that in visual promethee 1.3 you included a dashboard function that is still being developed. This dashboard will be related to what I'm talking? I can do this exporting the evaluation table to an excel sheet and creating a graph to evaluate the monthly evolution of suppliers, but are you planning to do something like this in this dashboard function? Thanks a lot,

I understand the difference between two different types of thresholds value. However, and knowing that the software does the work, I aim to know how does the preference function work with percentage threshold values. Imaging we choose linear preference function for one criterion. When you compare your d value with p o q, what value need you to compare with? In the example of choosing the site place in the demo, for the criterion "Price" this happens. I would be grateful if you could explain how does the function works with this kind of value. Thanks.
In the case of percentage thresholds (q and p are percentage values), when Pj(a,b) is computed for a criterion fj to maximize the evaluation difference fj(a)-fj(b) is computed and is compared to ......
