Özet

This work deals with the multi-objective optimization problem, Personnel Assignment Problem with Hierarchical Ordering and Team Constraints, which appears in personnel assignment of large hierarchical organizations, such as military. Weighted Sum Method, which is one of the pioneering approaches towards multi-objective optimization, is considered as the means of solution to the problem. The adaptation of this intuitive and successful method to the problem, and an analysis on fine-tuning of its various parameters are discussed in this paper.
