This quantity, edited as a Festschrift in honor of Prof. Milan Zeleny, displays and emulates his unmistakable legacy: the fundamental multidimensionality of human and social affairs. there are numerous degrees of this multidimensionality provided during this quantity: 1. Multidisciplinarity of contributed papers 2. Multinationality in their authors, extending even to the editors and the writer and three. Multicultural and multilevel exposition, starting from empirical reports to philosophical foundations. typically, those papers will be divided into 3 elements: a number of standards choice Making; Social and Human approach administration; and knowledge, wisdom and knowledge administration. it's the attractiveness of multidimensionality in selection making, economics, optimization, platforms, cybernetics and the pursuit of information that undergo the stamp of particular Zeleny's contributions. His life-long commitment to multidimensionality has produced an final multidimensional being, dwelling in educational 'multiverse', functioning in a boundaryless global of all continents, cultures and international locations. This booklet is as various and as multidimensional because the guy and his work.

Managers this day are understandably skeptical of the guarantees of recent applied sciences. throughout the Nineteen Nineties, owners of either firm functions and net systems promised huge, immense merits. businesses invested huge sums, however the advantages both did not materialize, or got here at a excessive rate. Managers sacrificed flexibility and struggled to collaborate with enterprise companions - a crippling drawback in modern industry.

Multicriteria Routing Models in Telecommunication Networks help in clarifying these aspects. While a routing principle will designate an essential general feature of the routing functionality (for example whether it is static or dynamic or single-path/multipath) we will use the term routing method to designate a certain specification of a routing principle a central element of which is the procedure (algorithm or set of rules) used to perform the path (assuming that each route is associated with a path in the network representation) calculation and path selection for any given end-toend connection request at a given time.

2003] proposes and describes the essential features of a multiple objective dynamic routing model with alternative routing (ie for each node-to-node flow a first choice path and a second choice path, to be used when the first one is blocked, have to be calculated) of periodic type based on a bi-objective-shortest path model using implied costs and blocking probabilities as path metrics. , 2003], which analyses an instability problem in a multiobjective networkwide optimisation dynamic routing model with alternative routing, that uses two network performance objective functions (expected revenue associated with the total traffic carried and maximal node-to-node blocking probability) and a stochastic traffic model.

These developments will enable the development of a new, high performance multiservice Internet implementing the concept of QoS-based packet network proposed in [El-Sayed and Jaffe, 2002]. All these trends put in evidence the increasing relevance of the issues related to the definition and assessment of multidimensional QoS parameters and the associated network control mechanisms, which constitutes a major factor to justify the interest in using MCDA, namely in routing approaches, as analysed in the next sections.
