Comparison of the REMBRANDT system with the Wang and Elhag approach: A practical example of the rank reversal problem

Hamed Maleki
2012 African Journal of Business Management  
While in many cases this is a perfectly valid phenomenon, there are also many cases where rank should be preserved. This paper deals with rank reversal due to the inconsistency of the inputs.  ...  Analytic hierarchy process (AHP) has been considerably criticized for possible rank reversal phenomenon caused by: i, when new alternatives are added or old ones deleted; and ii, when new criteria are  ...  So, this paper offers the REMBRANDT system to avoid rank reversal. A group in the Netherlands, led by F.A.  ...

The Analytic Hierarchy and Analytic Network Measurement Processes: The Measurement of Intangibles [chapter]

Thomas L. Saaty, Mariya Sodenkamp
2010 Applied Optimization  
The AHP can cope with the inherent subjectivity in all decision making, and make it explicit to the stakeholders through relative quantitative priorities.  ...  Multicriteria thinking demonstrates that in order to make a best choice in a decision, discussion and cause-effect reasoning are inadequate to learn what the best overall outcome is.  ...  Group Decision Making [3, 6, 9] Here we consider two issues in group decision making.  ...

Ranking the key areas for autonomous proving ground development using Pareto Analytic Hierarchy Process

Szabolcs Duleba, Tamas Tettamanti, Adam Nyerges, Zsolt Szalay
2021 IEEE Access  
Since the non-Pareto optimal weight results might cause rank reversal in the final prioritization, the applied Pareto test guarantees that the final outcome reflects the expert evaluators' incentive.  ...  It is a real challenge to be able to make the right decisions due to a lack of numerous experiences in this field.  ...  AHP might cause rank reversal, which means that the real intention of the modelling; the prioritization of the criteria or alternatives can be biased.  ...

Elizabeth Dodson Coulter, James Coakley, John Sessions
2006 International Journal of Forest Engineering  
Additionally, even single criteria approaches often rely on expert judgment to inform models of user preferences and priorities.  ...  These preferences are used to make tradeoffs between alternatives that contain data that are physical and biological, quantitative and qualitative, and measured on many different scales.  ...  This is known as rank reversal. An alterative method proposed by Saaty for dealing with alternatives is the absolute, or ideal, mode of AHP.  ...

An AHP decision model for facility location selection

Jiaqin Yang, Huei Lee
1997 Facilities  
The AHP model provides a framework to assist managers in analysing various location factors, evaluating location site alternatives, and making final location selections.  ...  The primary principle of the AHP model is to match decision-makers' preferences with location site characteristics.
