The Application of Least-squares Method in the Group-AHP

LI Hongyi, ZHANG Dalu


Group-AHP plays an important role in the practical use, but there has not been a perfect method to solve it so far. This paper is intended for doing some research about the application of Least-squares in the Group-AHP.

Key words: Group-AHP; Least-squares method AHP


Group-AHP; Least-squares method AHP
