Languages of publication
This research examines new directions in applications of Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) methods in the process of selecting appropriate ERP system by organizations. The research identifies and reviews the most relevant and influential publications, which formed the state of art in this research field. Tendencies of the use of MCDM methods are demonstrated by the means of comparative analysis. The first part of the paper introduces MCDM methods often used in the ERP system selection process. Second part of the paper provides literature analysis of various MCDM methods, their acceptance and frequency of application for selection of an ERP system.
