Abstract: Web-HIPRE is a Java applet for multiple criteria decision analysis. Being located on the WWW, it can be accessed from everywhere in the world. This has opened up a completely new era and dimension in decision support. Web-HIPRE provides a common platform for individual and group decision making. The models can be processed at the same or at different times and the results can be easily shared and combined. There is a possibility to define links to other WWW addresses. These links can refer to any other kind of information such as graphics, sound or video describing the criteria or alternatives. This can improve the quality of decision support dramatically. The most common weighting methods including AHP, SMART, SWING, SMARTER and value functions are supported. Web-HIPRE is located on http://www.hipre.hut.fi/
