The paper deals with analysis of incentive compatible multicriteria decisions within a computer-based multiagent framework. The general design problem is discussed on an example of a market decision problem, where a producer is introducing a product and some clients are considering purchase of the product. Decisions of the producer and clients are multicriterial. Each of the clients is seeking for the product variant according to his own preferences. The producer decides which variant of the product is introduced to the market. In order to incentivize the decisions, one of his criterions takes into account an aggregated satisfaction of the clients. Solutions compatible to the preferences of the producer and to the preferences of the clients are searched for. A multiagent computer-based system has been constructed for supporting mulicriteria analysis made by clients and by the producer. Selected results of interactive sessions made with use of the system are presented and analyzed.
