This book offers a simple introduction to thefundamentals and applications of the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) without apre-requisite for a sophisticated mathematical background. It provides a quickand intuitive understanding of the methodology using spreadsheet examples andexplains in a step-by-step fashion how to use Super Decisions, a freelyavailable software developed by the Creative Decisions Foundations. The book isintended to be a resource for decision makers with little or no exposure to thefield of Operations Research (OR); however, the book can be used as a verygentle introduction to the AHP methodology and/or as an AHP hands-on supplementfor standard OR textbooks. AHP is an intuitive and mathematically simplemethodology in the field of multi-criteria decision making. Because of this,most AHP books assume the reader has basic OR mathematical background. However,AHP simplicity suggests that decision makers from all disciplines can takeadvantage of the methodology without struggling with the mathematics behind it.To fulfill this need, this book delivers a quick and practical understanding ofthe method that can be useful for corporate executives.
