The elicitation of preference information in multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) processes and the lack of practical means supporting it is a significant problem in real-life applications of MCDA. The issues at hand are problematical in a multitude of ways, but some of these issues may be remedied by accepting weaker input statements from decision-makers than what is most commonly needed, yet being able to utilize these statements for decision evaluation. In this paper, we propose a fast and practically useful weight elicitation method, which builds on the ideas of rank-order methods, but in addition take imprecise cardinal information into account.
