The aim of the current research is to measure objective congruence (incongruence) of the results obtained in a process of multiple criteria analysis when applying different MCDM methods. The methodology for evaluation of ranking results is developed on the ground of a case study of the redevelopment of derelict buildings as well as on composed experimental tasks. Fuzzified COPRAS, TOPSIS and VIKOR methods are applied for ranking the alternatives. Calculation results are evaluated by applying mathematical statistics methods. A methodology for measuring the congruence (incongruence) of the relative significances of alternatives is proposed.

The paper analyses the problem of ranking accuracy in multiple criteria decision-making (MCDM) methods. The methodology for measuring the accuracy of determining the relative significance of alternatives as a function of the criteria values is developed. An algorithm of the Technique for the Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) that applies criteria values' transformation through a normalization of vectors and the linear transformation is considered. A computational experiment is presented, to compare the results of a multiple criteria analysis and the ranking accuracy in a particular situation.
