Abstract: In a general setting, decision makers can face the situation where different criteria apply for the different options among which they have to choose the best one. We call such options scenarios. In this paper we study criteria evaluation in a multi-criteria decision method for the handling of different scenarios. A novel intuitionistic fuzzy evaluation method based on index matrices is proposed. This approach permits to efficiently handle the indifference caused by the inapplicability of criteria in specific scenarios. An illustrative example is provided.
