Several kinds of techniques for multiple criteria decision making have been developed for the last few decades. Above all, the aspiration level approach to multi-objective programming problems is widely recognized to be effective in many practical fields. As a variant of the aspiration level approach, the author developed the satisficing tradeoff method. In addition, he has been applying the method to several kinds of practical problems for these ten years. Some of them were already performed in real life. Typical examples such as feed formulation for live stock, erection management of a cable stayed bridge and bond portfolio selection will be included in this paper.
