What is the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP)?

The analytic hierarchy process (AHP) is a structured technique for organizing and analyzing complex decisions, based on mathematics and psychology. It uses a pairwise comparison approach to more accurately establish the relative importance of decision criteria. AHP has been studied and refined extensively since its inception in 1970, and it is now used by businesses, governments, and academia around the world.
