|Abstract: ||The performance objectives of an irrigation scheme are productivity, equity,
adequacy, reliability, surety index and frequency index. These objectives conflict
with each other so multiple objectives need to be considered when making decisions.
An approach based on multi criteria decision making (MCDM) technique of
compromise programming is presented in this paper. It consists of identifying
different performance objectives (POs) (for example, productivity, equity etc.) that
contribute to “overall performance index” (OPI) of irrigation management. Weights
are assigned to each PO that reflects its relative importance. The values of the
indicators are obtained from simulation-optimization modeling and weights are
obtained by analytical hierarchical process (AHP). OPIs are obtained for different
alternatives and the preferred alternative is the one that is nearest to the ideal point.
The applicability of the developed approach is demonstrated with the help of case
study from Maharashtra State, India, using the “AWAM” model to estimate the
values of POs for different irrigation strategies or alternatives and comparison of POs
obtained from the survey of head, middle and tail reach farmers. The results
indicated that MCDM generated the same irrigation strategy for head and middle
reach farmers; but a different strategy for tail reach farmers, based on their expressed
