This paper considers the main positions of one‐sided and two‐sided problems. For one‐sided problems only the method of solution “the distance to the ideal point” is discussed in the actual version. For two‐sided problems a distinction is made between games with rational behaviour and games against nature. The main strategic principles are as follows: simple min‐max principle, extended min‐max principle, Wald's rule, Savage criterion, Hurwicz's rule, Laplace's rule, Bayes's rule, Hodges‐Lehmann rule. Questions of transforming the decision‐making matrix are considered. The article gives the description of a software as well as an example of an investment variant estimation.

A lot of data had to be processed and evaluated in carrying out multivariant design and multiple criteria analysis of a building life cycle. The number of feasible alternatives can be as large as 100 000. Each of the alternatives may be described from various perspectives (economic, technical, qualitative, technological, social, legislative, infrastructural, etc.). The problem arises how to perform multivariant design and multiple criteria analysis of the alternative variants based on this enormous amount of information. To solve this problem the methods of multivariant design and multiple criteria building life cycle analysis were developed. In order to demonstrate the theory an example is given in this paper.
