Increasing the Adequacy of Management Decision Making for Choosing Intermediaries in Supply Chains

P. 374-388.

To date, a diverse array of expert assessments for quantitative
(tangible) and qualitative (intangible) objects based on the analytic hierarchy
process (AHP) has been accumulated in various fields of knowledge. The systematization
and analysis of the collected data made it possible to put forward
the hypothesis that some of the indicators (the eigenvalue of the matrix, the
consistency index, and the ration of consistency) can be considered in the form
of aggregates of random variables representing an intellectual product and
reflecting features of human thinking. The systematization and statistical processing
of the results obtained by experts on the basis of the AHP showed that
the distribution functions of the values of expert estimates for the consistency
indices significantly differ from the similar functions of the generated matrices.
