This book is a comprehensive summary, primarily of the author's own thinking and research, about the Analytic Hierarchy Process and decision making. It includes advanced mathematical theory and diverse applications. Fundamentals of Decision Making has all the latest theoretical developments in the AHP and new theoretical material not published elsewhere. We consider this book to be the replacement for the original book on the subject, The Analytic Hierarchy Process that was published by McGraw Hill Publishers, New York.

This work is the outcome of many years research into a very practical, yet simple way to facilitate group decision making. This book is about making decisions the natural way which we call the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). There are two kinds of decisions: intuitive and analytical. Intuitive decisions are not supported by data and documentation and may appear arbitrary. A surprising amount of corporate decision making is of the intuitive type. The person charged with making the decision accumulates a lot of information, probably biased by his own values, goes in a room and comes out with a decision. This model is a poor basis from which to operate a large corporation. Analytical decision making, when used collectively in a corporation, leads to shared values. Decisions that are required by corporations metamorphose from individual to strategic to portfolio decisions. The Analytic Hierarchy Process is the way to introduce analytical decision making in! your organization.About the Author:
Thomas L. Saaty is a Distinguished University Professor at the University of Pittsburgh, where he teaches at the Pitt Graduate School of Business. He is best-known as being the modern mathematician who figured out a way to measure intangibles, and is the inventor, architect, and primary theoretician of the Analytic Hierarchy Process, a decision-making framework used for large-scale, multiparty, multi-criteria decision analysis, and of the Analytic Network Process, its generalization to decisions with dependence and feedback. Saaty is a member of National Academy of Engineering (2005), and in 2008 he received the Impact Prize from the Operations Research Society INFORMS for how the AHP has revolutionized the way we resolve complex decision problems. The publication of his books on the Analytic Hierarchy Process and the release of PC-based software such as SuperDecisions and web-based collaborative software such as Decision Lens have led to widespread dissemination of the process. The AHP has been applied worldwide to help decision makers in every conceivable decision context across both the public and private sectors, with literally thousands of reported applications.
