Suppose that for a given optimisation problem (which might be multicriteria problem or a single-criteron problem), an additional objective function is introduced. How does the the set of solutions, i.~e.\ the set of efficient points change when instead of the old problem the new multicriteria problem is considered? How does the set of properly efficient points, the set of weakly efficient points and the set of strictly efficient points change? And what kind of effects occur in the value space? This paper answers these questions under various suitable assumptions.
