Conference paper


To identify the weak links of the emergency rescue system in coal enterprises, this study assessed the vulnerability of this system with the Group Gray Analytical Hierarchy Process (GGAHP), which combined the Group Decision Making and Grey Theory. By setting up the index system about vulnerability and judgment matrix, then whitening the matrix, the vulnerability data at the bottom of the index system could be calculated to spot the weak links of the system.
