Define a decision hierarchy of criteria and calculate their weights
based on pairwise comparisons using the Analytic Hierarchy Process AHP.
In a next step you then define a set of alternatives and evaluate them
with respect to your list of criteria to find the most preferrable
alternative and solve your decision problem.
For a simple calculation of priorities based on pairwise comparisons
you can use the AHP priority calculator.

Simple example to demonstrate the method
Mode: Hierarchy evaluation
1 (6) hierarchy level(s), 4 (100) hierarchy leafs, 1 (50) hierarchy node(s), 64 (6000) hierarchy characters.
Input or edit text in the text area below, then submit. (See examples)
Buy tablet computer: display size, battery life, weight, design;
In the text input area above you can define a new hierarchy.
Nodes are followed by a colon, leafs are separated by comma,
and each branch has to be terminated by a semicolon.
Tilde character (~) is discarded. Names for categories and sub-categories need to be unique. No numbers
are allowed as category names, e.g. use "100 $" instead of "100". A category cannot have a
single sub-category. By default, all priorities are set equally to sum-up to 100% in each category
or sub-category. Note: input is case-sensitive.
As registered user you can download priorities and save the defined hierarchy as project.
