OVERVIEW


The Triptych AHP Worksheet can be used to prioritize (or rank) Items by performing pair-wise comparisons of Items against each other in terms of relative importance. The theory behind this approach comes from the Analytical Hierarchy Process developed by Thomas Saaty in 1980.

FEATURES

  • Create and manage a AHP matrix with up to 200 x 200 Items
  • Add, remove, or insert Items
  • Expand matrix with the click of a button
  • Compare Items against each other
  • Sort Items by Row Total, Relative Importance, or Scaled Importance
  • Automatic calculation of Relative Importance and Scaled Importance

BENEFITS

The main advantage with AHP worksheets is that it can be easily applied in a group setting and allows a team to come to a consensus on the relative priority of any set of Items. For example, you can:
  • generate Importance values for Whats in the QFD worksheet
  • generate Importance values for Criteria in the Pugh, TOPSIS and SDI Design Selection worksheets.

REQUIREMENTS

  • Microsoft Windows 7, 8, or 10
  • Microsoft Excel 2010, 2013 (32 or 64 bit), or 2016 (32 or 64 bit)
  • Administrator rights required to install software

SCALES

  • 1: Item A is equally important as Item B
  • 1/5: Item A is less important than Item B
  • 1/10: Item A is much less importance than Item B
Saaty Scale
  • 9: Item A has absolute importance over Item B
  • 8: Intermediate value
  • 7: Item A has demonstrated importance over Item B
  • 6: Intermediate value
  • 5: Item A has essential or strong importance over Item B
  • 4: Intermediate value
  • 3: Item A has weak importance over Item B
  • 2: Intermediate value
  • 1: Item A is equally important as Item B
  • 1/2: Intermediate value
  • 1/3: Item B has weak importance over Item A
  • 1/4: Intermediate value
  • 1/5: Item B has essential or strong importance over Item A
  • 1/6: Intermediate value
  • 1/7: Item B has demonstrated importance over Item A
  • 1/8: Intermediate value
  • 1/9: Item B has absolute importance over Item A
