A four-method approach has been used to assess the papers found on the Scopus database, limiting the review for the past ten years of research. For each dimension, the most used assessment tools used by researchers are mentioned under each dimension section. Besides variable selection approaches covered in the research review, modeling and optimization techniques have been listed.
