Several approaches that utilise various questioning procedures to elicit criteria weights exist, ranging from direct rating and point allocation to more elaborate methods. However, decision makers often find it difficult to understand how these methods work and how they should be comprehended. This article discusses the SWING family of elicitation techniques and suggests a refined method: the P-SWING method. Based on this, we provide an integrated framework for elicitation, modelling and evaluation of multi-criteria decision problems.
