Application of the AHP in analysing decision making process in projects: case study of a major project decision
This paper focuses on a special application of the AHP for retrospective analysis of acritical project decision using real data from an infrastructure project. Modelling and analyzing the decision with the AHP were conducted through a case study as part of a comprehensive research on project major decisions. The AHP facilitated analysis of the quality of ‘decision making (DM) process’ in terms of decision makers’ (DMks’) biases, their level of compliance and engagement with project objectives and quality of communication during DM. Various features of Comparion Core software were used to facilitate problem analysis. Unlike many applications of the AHP in project management (PM), it was used in its full capacity with a focus on analyzing the DM ‘process’ rather than a peripheral method to generate input for other DM methods.

Abstract

This paper focuses on a special application of the AHP for retrospective analysis of acritical project decision using real data from an infrastructure project. Modelling and analyzing the decision with the AHP were conducted through a case study as part of a comprehensive research on project major decisions. The AHP facilitated analysis of the quality of ‘decision making (DM) process’ in terms of decision makers’ (DMks’) biases, their level of compliance and engagement with project objectives and quality of communication during DM. Various features of Comparion Core software were used to facilitate problem analysis. Unlike many applications of the AHP in project management (PM), it was used in its full capacity with a focus on analyzing the DM ‘process’ rather than a peripheral method to generate input for other DM methods.
