The following two solutions illustrate approximations to some of the AHP calculations that are performed with Expert Choice. Although these approximate calculations can be somewhat tedious and may not produce the same results, particularly when there are some inconsistencies in judgments, they give you a more detailed look at some of AHP’s intricacies.

We will illustrate two approximate methods for arriving at an AHP solution to Case Study 1. The approximations can be good in some cases but not so good in others. In general, the smaller the clusters in an AHP model and the more consistent the judgments, the more accurate the approximate calculations will be. Following this approximate ...
