A comprehensive collection of the Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) methods as of January 2021. The collection includes:

- The complete list of the existing MADM methods representing a subset of MCDA methods dedicated to Choice problems;

- An incomplete set of MODM methods representing a subset of MCDA methods dedicated to Design problems;

- Miscellaneous items: Decision Support Systems and individual mathematical tools;

(Records include for each entry: code name/abbreviation, full name, original reference, publication year. MADM methods also include the basic description.)

- The historical analysis of MCDA method development trends;

- The newly proposed Universal Classification System for the MCDA methods, the first of its kind that applies to the entire variety of methods belonging to the MCDA domain;

- An example application of the proposed Universal Classification System to categorise among an incomplete set of MCDA methods including MADM, MODM and DSS.
