The Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) is a structured method which allows organizing and ranking complex decisions on the basis of mathematics and psychology. Rather than prescribing a ”correct” decision, AHP helps the decision-makers to find a solution that fits best their purpose and the manner of understanding the problem. This method provides a comprehensive and rational framework for the decision-making process, to represent and quantify its elements, to link these elements to the general objectives and to evaluate
the alternative solutions. AHP users start by decomposing their decision making problem into a hierarchy of sub-problems that are easier to understand, and which can be analysed independently. The elements of the
hierarchy can refer to any aspect of the decision-making problem – tangible or intangible – carefully measured or approximated, properly or poorly understood. The paper gives an example of using the multi-criteria AHP method to rank feeding solutions tested on layers, with the purpose of decreasing the
egg cholesterol level, while observing environmental protection.
