What is the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP)?

What is the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP)?

AHP is based on mathematics and psychology. It simplifies the process of weighting the decision criteria by comparing two criteria at a time (i.e., pairwise comparisons) to determine which is more important with respect to the decision goal – and by how much. Without AHP, decision-makers are left to simply guess their relative importance. The benefits of using AHP include:

  • Balancing multiple quantitative and qualitative factors
  • Ensuring a comprehensive assessment of each alternative
  • Promoting cost vs. benefit analyses
  • Providing better decision justification
  • Enabling quick reprioritization in response to changing business condition
