AHP Model for Evaluating EIS Software Packages

EIS 소프트웨어 패키지 평가를 위한 AHP 모형

  • Published : 1999.09.30


Executive information systems (EIS) developers are faced with an increasingly difficult choice problem in the evaluation and selection of software packages. For many reasons, they frequently must depend on identification and evaluation of features of packages. When EIS software evaluation is regarded as an unstructured or semi-structured group decision making problem, the most appropriate decision-aiding methods are needed to help effective group interaction. This paper examines evaluation criteria of full-featured EIS packages and considers the priority of these criteria using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). Two exploratory phases are presented. In the first phase, an approach combining the AHP with the linear weighted attribute method is presented to computer qualities of some packages. In the second phase, the decision making group includes EIS developers, users, and vendors to prioritize evaluation criteria.
