Abstract

To model decision problems properly has a direct effect on the quality of the solution. The aim of this study is to minimise the errors arising from the decision maker during modelling for increasing problem-solving efficiency of analytic network process (ANP) method. In order to achieve this aim, a two-stage approach was proposed in this study:
