Past studies have shown that the weighted product method may be a good choice in constructing CIs. However, a problem in its application is the determination of the weights for sub-indicators. This paper extends the weighted product method and proposes a multiplicative optimization model for constructing CIs to avoid the subjectivity in determining the weights for sub-indicators. Additional information on the weights, if available, can be easily incorporated into the proposed model. A case study on the Technology Achievement Index is given to illustrate the use of the proposed multiplicative optimization model. © 2007 IEEE.||Source Title:||IEEM 2007: 2007 IEEE International Conference on Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/72247||ISBN:||1424415292||DOI:||10.1109/IEEM.2007.4419148|
