In this paper, we have integrated Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) to generate local weights of alternatives from pair-wise comparison of judgment matrix used in the AHP for a three attribute system for measuring performance of personnel at entry level of managerial hierarchy. Multiple expert judgments have been considered for weight determination of the attributes. Thus, DEAHP (i.e., combined DEA-AHP approach) has been proposed in this paper as an alternative to the traditional methods of weight derivation in AHP.
