Multi-critera selection of a corporate system by using paired comparison analysis
The paper presents the results of comparing foreign corporate information systems (CISs) obtained by using the classical analytic hierarchy process (AHP). The eight most common corporate information systems of international standards were analyzed by 43 criteria, grouped into 7 classes of characteristics. Besides identifying the corporate systems which are the most preferable for implementation, there were determined some classes of criteria which are vital when selecting a system, and for each criterion 3-4 most suitable systems were identified.
Keywords: corporative information systems, multi-criteria assessment and selection, paired comparison analysis, analytic hierarchical procedure, classes of criteria.
