The case studies of inter-basin water transfer and urban water management illustrate the methodology. Different methods usually give different results. The main reason of this discrepancy is the fact that the different methods are based on different ways of expressing the preferences of the DM, and these preference information are not consistent. The best way of solving this problem is to present all results to the DM, who can then think over his/her preference information and be able to modify them appropriately.
