Call for papers: "Applications of the Analytic Hierarchy Process in Business and Systems"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Business and Systems Research.

The analytic hierarchy process or AHP, a popular multi-criteria decision making method, has a wide range of applications, particularly in the area of business and management. In the competitive, fast-changing, globalised business world, business leaders and managers often encounter problems in making decisions that involve multiple criteria, some of which may be subjective in nature.

The major advantage of using AHP is that the method can effectively deal with objective as well as subjective factors. It also proposes to break down a complex decision making problem into a number of distinct albeit inter-related components that makes the derivation of a potential solution easier.

In addition, the method is user-friendly and can easily accommodate multiple decision makers. All of these factors make AHP a popular method that can further spur applications in many areas of business and systems. Therefore, a special issue on applications of AHP in business and systems is very timely and relevant.
