University of Pittsburgh, 1990 - Decision making - 292 pages
Executives in business, industry, & government can find out how to fine tune the decision making process by using the highly acclaimed multicriteria decision making method of the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). Put your decision making on a basis of logic & consistency. The AHP technique helps you organize your thought processes in a logical fashion & set priorities. This method is particularly applicable to decision making involving complex & ill- or non-structured problems with both tangible & intangible factors. You can predict likely outcomes, select the best alternatives, allocate resources according to priorities, conduct cost-benefit comparisons, plan projected or desired futures & exercise control over changes in the decision making system. This is a book of case studies & practical examples with an introduction to the theory. It can serve as a useful textbook in a decision making course in a graduate school of business.
