An Airfield Minimum Operating Strip Selection Method Based on the TOPSIS Method

Tao ZHANG, Zhengyu XUE, Yunyun XU


With Multiple Attribute Decision Making (MADM) method, the selection of airfield Minimum Operating Strip (MOS) schemes is researched. The influencing factors of the selection decision making are analyzed. The weight values of these factors are determined. Then the decision making optimization method based on TOPSIS is presented. At last, the feasibility of the method is validated with a calculation example.
