Apply AHP to the remainder of HW1 and compare the resulting total scores of the 3 candidate computers with the normalized total scores you obtained in HW1, and discuss the differences and any insights gained by making the same comparisons as in HW2. (Specifically, compute the following two ratios: RTA1: the largest total score/the smallest total score based on AHP and RTA2: the largest total score/the second largest total score based on AHP and compare them with RTM1 and RTM2 from HW1 respectively.)

HW 1:

Use Affordability, Quality, and Style as the only Values for your decision in finding the best computer for you among 3 computers you have identified as your choices. Apply the Multifactor Evaluation Process by:

(i) assigning normalized Weights to the Values,

(ii) assigning for each Value, Ratings of individual computers, and normalizing these ratings for each Value.

(iii) computing the Total Score of each computer by multiplying the normalized weight to the normalized rating of each Value and summing the products for each Computer. Note: the total scores are automatically normalized, i.e., summing to 1.

The computer with the highest total score is the Best computer.

You must follow the example on OV-13 to systematically show all normalized numerical results to receive full credits.

Additionally, compute the following 4 ratios to be used for comparisons in HW2 and 3:

RWM1: the largest weight/the smallest weight; RWM2: the largest weight/the second largest weight (in this case, itâ€™s the middle weight);

RTM1: the largest total score/the smallest total score; RTM2: the largest total score/the second largest total score.

HW 2:

Apply AHP to re-compute the weights for the three values: Affordability, Quality, and Style in HW1 as the row averages of the pairwise comparison matrix. Compute CI of the matrix; if it is greater than 0.05, then modify the matrix to make it totally consistent by making the least confident pairwise comparison consistent with the other two comparisons. Compare these weights with the normalized weights in HW1by computing the ratios of the largest to the smallest weights and the largest to the second largest weights for each approach to see whether the AHP ratios are greater, implying that the AHP weights are more differentiated than the weights that are generally less precisely assigned in HW1. (Specifically, computing the following 2 ratios: RWA1: the largest weight/the smallest weight based AHP and RWA2: the largest weight/the second largest weight based on AHP and compared them to RWM1 and RWM2 in HW1 respectively.)
