Using the analytical hierarchy process (AHP) to formulate a continuous improvement process (CIP)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

The growing importance of setting up continuous improvement strategies in manufacturing organisations is proving to be a difficult process. Managers seem to have difficulties in choosing strategies that will improve productivity, availability and quality. A Multiple Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM), based on the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP), is used as a means of systematising the decision process. A generic framework was developed to formulate an ideal strategy for a Continuous Improvement Process (CIP) using AHP. In addition, the issues and implications regarding consistency and sensitivity analysis are also discussed.
