Abstract
This technical note introduces a new way to depict MARCUS consensus ranking results. The results are represented as diagrams called sensitivity charts that give users a simple means to interpret how well the group agreed on the final consensus ranking. From the charts, it is easy to see which rankings the group agreed on, and for which there was poor agreement. A program has been written to generate sensitivity charts from MARCUS outputs. It is recommended that sensitivity charts be provided to decision makers any time MARCUS is used as a decision support tool.
