Proposal of Super Pairwise Comparison Matrix
This paper proposes a Super Pairwise Comparison Matrix (SPCM) to express all pairwise comparisons in the evaluation process of the dominant analytic hierarchy process (AHP) or the multiple dominant AHP (MDAHP) as a single pairwise comparison matrix. In addition, this paper shows, by means of a numerical counterexample, that an evaluation value resulting from the application of the Harker method to a SPCM does not necessarily coincide with that of the evaluation value resulting from the application of the dominant AHP(DAHP) to the evaluation value obtained from each pairwise comparison matrix by using the eigenvalue method.
