Decision-Making Using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and JMP Scripting Language

 Decision-Making Using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and JMP® Scripting Language


Melvin Alexander, Analytician, University of Maryland Medical Center

JMP Scripting Language (JSL) can be used to implement the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). AHP helps decision makers choose the best solution from several options and selection criteria. Thomas Saaty developed AHP as a decision-making method in the 1970s. AHP has broad applications in operations research, quality engineering and Define for Six Sigma situations. AHP builds a hierarchy (ranking) of decision items using comparisons between each pair of items expressed as a matrix. Paired comparisons produce weighting scores that measure how much importance items and criteria have with each other. This presentation will model AHP using personal, business and medical decision-making examples. JSL scripts will generate output that includes measures of criteria and selection importance and data consistency.
