This paper investigates the feasibility of applying the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) in dealing with complex decision problem to improve the group decision making by a more systematic and logical approach. In order to gain some preliminary understanding, we begin with going through a brief literature review of Complex Decision and how AHP address it. As an example, we use a case study of Calisto Corporation, a small enterprise co-founded by writer, in using the AHP to find their focus area for further development. We also use Expert Decision Software to solve the problem presented in the case study.

    15. 15. #STEP.FIVE Make the decisionCalisto management decide to focus on café and printing project and terminate its operation in Clothing Merchandise and Event Organizer. Because they have used the AHP, it is easy for them to trace their thinking and to justify the steps along the way to their decision. If they have second thoughts about the final outcome, they can revisit the process and make changes if appropriate. And if they choose to, they can reveal the details of their process to their consultants and confidants, to the employee, to the shareholders, or to anyone else who might be concerned with the decision.
    16. 16. SummaryAnalytic Hierarchy Process has shown Calisto team that the Café Project best satisfies alltheir criteria and judgments, followed closely by the Digital Printing Project. The otheralternatives fall short of meeting their criteria.AHP can be used to help us address other case which requires complex decision processExpert Choice software plays important role in this case by:• Brings structure and measurement to Calisto planning & selecting process• Helps Calisto determine strategic priorities and optimally allocates its resources• Communicates priorities and builds consensus among management• Documents and justifies Calisto strategic decisions• Enables Calisto to move forward quickly and confidently
