Criteria-Based Decision Analysis
This app accepts a list of your criteria, and then the various options from which to choose the optimal.
This method, based on the Analytical Hierarchy Process, consists of pairwise evaluations of criteria to generate weighting factors.
STEPS:
Enter all criteria, using
[Return]
key or
[+]
to add another
When finished entering all criteria, press the
[Return]
key or
[I'm Done!!! Go compute (see results above)]
button
Use the slider bars to compare pairs of criteria
The initial slider value indicates equal weights for the 2 criteria
Slide the dot to the right if the criterion on the right is more important than the one on the left
Slide the dot to the left if the criterion on the left is more important than the one on the right
After setting or adjusting all the sliders, press the
[I'm Done!!! Go compute (see results above)]
button

For each criterion, select the method to normalize the option values from the drop-down
To Maximum (default):
Divides all values for that criterion by the maximum
To Max and Min:
Map the values to a straight line where min is 1 and max is 10
Use Entered Values
Use values as they have been entered
Logarithm Function:
Map the lowest value to 1 and highest to 10, fitting a log curve between
