Vol. 9  No. 6  pp. 216-219


In component-based software development, component composition is one of the important factors to ensure the successful system development. Among component combination, a variety of factors must be taken into consideration. However, these factors are always incomparable so that it is difficult to make an effective choice. This paper introduces multi-attribute utility function to improve the accuracy of decision-making. By converting incommensurable objective function or criteria to single objective function, and combining with the AHP method, our appraoch can achieve the most optimum combination of components.
