Abstract:During the past thirty years a number of routing systems have been established within congested traffic waters around the world for the increase of navigational safety. Some factors which are related have to concern when a routing system is being designed. Therefore several preferred draft solutions of the system are first introduced from different safety concepts, and then a final solution usually judged by a few designers with their experience is selected. This study uses eclectic methodologies to establish a model for evaluating the draft solutions. Through theories of Multiple Criteria Decision-Making, the study identifies criteria for evaluation by means of a questionnaire, and establishes hierarchy structure of the system to obtain the weight of the criteria by means of Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) method. Finally the sequence of the draft solutions is scored by Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS). Because experts' opinions are elicited, the final solution evaluated by the model should significantly be the optimum. The study also shows the evaluation of solutions for routing system in Kaohsiung approaches as an example.
