Thomas L Saaty(
Book
)
56 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book addresses the issue of how to structure a complex situatioin, identify its criteria and other factors whether intangible or concrete, measure the interactions among them in a simple way, and synthesize all the information to obtain priorities. The priorities can then be used in a fenefit/cost setting to develop portfolios of activities, one of the major concerns of organizations today. From the Publisher

The analytic hierarchy process : planning, priority setting, resource allocation by
Bruce L Golden(
Book
)
20 editions published between 1979 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Analytic Hierarchy Process serves as a framework for people to structure their own problems and provide their own judgements based on knowledge, reason or feelings, to derive a set of priorities for activities to which they, for example, wish to allocate effort or resources. In this process transitivity of preference is studied through a new approach to consistency  which need not always strictly hold for the results to be acceptable. Also since hierarchic structures may not be complete, not all alternatives need to be directly comparable. It is necessary to construct a pairwise comparison matrix of the relative contribution or impact of each element on each governing objective or criterion in the adjacent upper level. In such a matrix of the elements by the elements, the elements are compared in a pairwise manner with respect to a criterion in the next level. In comparing the i, j elements, people prefer to give a judgement which indicates the dominance as an integer. Thus, if the dominance does not occur in the i, j position while comparing the ith element with the jth element then it is given in the j, i position as a ji and its reciprocal is automatically assigned to aij

)

The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is a prominent and powerful tool for making decisions in situations involving multiple objectives. Models, Methods, Concepts and Applications of the Analytic Hierarchy Process, 2nd Edition applies the AHP in order to solve problems focused on the following three themes: economics, the social sciences, and the linking of measurement with human values. For economists, the AHP offers a substantially different approach to dealing with economic problems through ratio scales. Psychologists and political scientists can use the methodology to quantify and derive measurements for intangibles. Meanwhile researchers in the physical and engineering sciences can apply the AHP methods to help resolve the conflicts between hard measurement data and human values. Throughout the book, each of these topics is explored utilizing real life models and examples, relevant to problems in todays society. This new edition has been updated and includes five new chapters that includes discussions of the following: The eigenvector and why it is necessary. A summary of ongoing research in the Middle East that brings together Israeli and Palestinian scholars to develop concessions from both parties. A look at the Medicare Crisis and how AHP can be used to understand the problems and help develop ideas to solve them

Decision making with the analytic network process : economic, political, social and technological applications with benefits,
opportunities, costs and risks by
Thomas L Saaty(
Book
)
9 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Analytic Network Process (ANP) developed by Thomas Saaty in his work on multicriteria decision making applies network structures with dependence and feedback to complex decision making. This book is a selection of applications of ANP to economic, social and political decisions, and also to technological design. The chapters comprise contributions of scholars, consultants and people concerned about the outcome of certain important decisions who applied the Analytic Network Process to determine the best outcome for each decision from among several potential outcomes. The ANP is a methodological tool that is helpful to organize knowledge and thinking, elicit judgments registered in both in memory and in feelings, quantify the judgments and derive priorities from them, and finally synthesize these diverse priorities into a single mathematically and logically justifiable overall outcome. In the process of deriving this outcome, the ANP also allows for the representation and synthesis of diverse opinions in the midst of discussion and debate. The ANP offers economists a considerably different approach for dealing with economic problems than the usual quantitative models used. The ANP approach is based on absolute scales used to represent pairwise comparison judgments in the context of dominance with respect to a property shared by the homogeneous elements being compared. How much or how many times more does A dominate B with respect to property P? Actually people are able to answer this question by using words to indicate intensity of dominance that all of us are equipped biologically to do all the time (equal, moderate, strong, very strong, and extreme) whose conversion to numbers, validation and extension to inhomogeneous elements form the foundation of the AHP/ANP. Numerous applications of the ANP have been made to economic problems, among which prediction of the turnaround dates for the US economy in the early 1990's and again in 2001 whose accuracy and validity were both confirmed later in the news. They were based on the process of comparisons of mostly intangible factors rather than on financial, employment and other data and statistics."Publisher's website

Analytical planning : the organization of systems by
Thomas L Saaty(
Book
)
17 editions published between 1985 and 1991 in English and Russian and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Analytical Planning: The Organization of Systems deals with systems and planning and suggests a methodological tool for integrating the two. This book presents the basic ideas behind complexity, systems, hierarchies, and prioritization and describes planning as a unique form of decision making with illustrations of some prominent philosophical and methodological approaches. It highlights some shortcomings of traditional approaches to planning and shows how these can be addressed by the systems approach.
