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 absolute judgements that represents,
how much more, one element dominates another with respect to a given
attribute. The judgements may be inconsistent, and how to measure
inconsistency and improve the judgements, when possible to obtain better
consistency is a concern of the AHP. The derived priority scales are
synthesised by multiplying them by the priority of their parent nodes and
adding for all such nodes. An illustration is included.
Examples: Drink consumption in US, best job decision, AIJ
