As it provides a general framework that has extensions to deal with various specificities in MCDM problems, the development of SMAA methods and their applications in real-life decision-making problems have been increased over the recent years. This paper provides an up-to-date literature review of different SMAA methods and their applications in various areas. First, we selected, from different on-line data base, 118 articles published between 1998 and 2017. We categorized the selected papers into theoretical and applied. While the theoretical papers were analyzed based on the method’s aggregation procedure, type of problem, type of method’s outputs and inputs, the applied papers were separated and analyzed by application areas. Then, we provide some descriptive statistics, analyzing the papers regarding to publication year and journals of publication. Finally, we provide some guidelines to assist decision-makers in the choice of a SMAA method on a specific decision-making context and some future research directions.
