We develop a ranking process for multi-objective decision making. For optimizing the multi-objective problem having both quantitative and qualitative objectives, weight assessment is important to convert the problem into the corresponding single objective problem. Therefore, a ranking process is proposed to simultaneously obtain the objective weights and the evaluation of alternatives with multiple objectives. Several new concepts are developed to handle the dynamism in distance computation and ranking of decisions in a multi-objective model having qualitative evaluations. The proposed process is illustrated in a numerical example.
