Nowadays, the economic crisis affecting the countries makes more important the selection process of investment projects. Such is the case of Ecuador where the Multi-annual Public Investment Plan 2017-2021 establishes indicative amounts of public investment that are projected to be executed annually to achieve each of the nine strategic objectives of the National Development Plan that pay tribute to the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN. This plan has certain weaknesses that may not allow an effective and efficient choice at the same time. Which entails a scenario of uncertainty for the Ecuadorian investment process. So we dare to say that a classic selection of investment projects is not suitable. Therefore, there is a need for a decision-making support tool that allows the most effective and optimal selection of the projects of greater importance and scope based on multiple, specifically defined criteria. Thus, the main objective of this research is to develop a selection process for investment projects based on multicriteria decision methods in a plithogenic environment. If an adequate method is determined for the selection of an investment project in an environment of uncertainty based on Plithogeny, it will be possible to provide an effective tool that optimizes the decision-making process. For this, the plithogenic versions of the AHP and TOPSIS methods will be adopted.
