Decisions involve many intangibles that need to be traded off. To do that, they have to be measured along side tangibles whose measurements must also be evaluated as to, how well, they serve the objectives of the decision maker. The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is a theory of measurement through pairwise comparisons and relies on the judgements of experts to derive priority scales. It is these scales that measure intangibles in relative terms. The comparisons are made using a scale of… 

Applications in Decision-Making: Analytic Hierarchy Process—AHP Revisited

The analytic hierarchy process (AHP) is a theory of relative measurement on absolute scales of both quantitative and qualitative criteria based on the paired comparison judgment of knowledgeable experts to enable a valid scale of priorities to be derived from these measurements.

AHP, a theory of measurement through pairwise comparisons, is used in this article to evolve a model for productivity measurement of the operation theater (OT), which could be applied as a models for quality improvement and decision-making.

PROJECT SELECTION FOR GROUP DECISION MAKING: A MULTIPLE PROJECT PERSPECTIVE FROM PAKISTAN

From the case study, the result suggests that the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) method can contribute significantly to the identification of sources that need further clarification of attributes and criteria and at the same time it can provide a systematic analytical tool in making a group decision.
