AbstractPROAFTN belongs to Multiple-Criteria Decision Aid (MCDA) paradigm and requires a several set of parameters for the purpose of classification. This study proposes a new inductive approach for obtaining these parameters from data. To evaluate the performance of developed learning approach, a comparative study between PROAFTN and a decision tree in terms of their learning methodology, classification accuracy, and interpretability is investigated in this paper. The major distinguished property of Decision tree is that its ability to generate classification models that can be easily explained. The PROAFTN method has also this capability, therefore avoiding a black box situation. Furthermore, according to the proposed learning approach in this study, the experimental results show that PROAFTN strongly competes with ID3 and C4.5 in terms of classification accuracy. © Her Majesty the Queen in Right of Canada 2011.
