Abstract
This report is concerned with dynamic and multi-criteria decision-making problems in naval engagement context. The objective is to identify best compromise strategies for weapons allocation against a set of incoming threats over a given period of time, in order to maximize the survivability and security of the ship. In this study, the weapon management problem is represented with multiple criteria decision tree and solved using two different solving approaches: 1) the Multiple Criteria Myopic approach (MCM approach), which deals only with the multiple criteria aspect; and 2) the Multiple Criteria Decomposition approach (MCD approach), which considers both the multiple criteria and the dynamic aspect of the decision problem. The empirical results show that the MCD approach is always superior to the MCM approach. This report argues for more research work in order to validate the results with subject matter experts and contribute to the development of tactics for highly complex and dynamic decision-making problems like weapon management of the Halifax Class Frigate facing multiple threats.
