It can be shown that, given a sufficiently large group size, consistency of the aggregate comparison matrix is guaranteed, regardless of the consistency measures of the individual comparison matrices, if the geometric mean (AIJ) is used to aggregate. Please see:

Aull-Hyde, Erdoğan, Duke (2006). An experiment on the consistency of aggregated comparison matrices in AHP, European Journal of Operational Research 171(1):290-295 · February 2006. ]]>

unfortunately, there is no Excel template version with more than 10 criteria. You can use AHP-OS for 5 participants. Define the project and use the Group Input Link to get inputs from your 5 participants. Just input different names for the pairwise comparisons. (You need to logout as project owner). See Section 7 in the AHP-OS manual.

First of all, thank you for the excel template file. I’d appreciate it if you could help me with something. Current template consists of 10 criteria and 20 participants. Do you have this template for 15 criterias? I have reviewed AHP-OS, but it gives the results for only one participant. How can I obtain common results of 5 participants in a study with 15 criterias?

Regards.

]]>I’m using the latest excel version for doing analysis but the template is limited to 20 participants. Any version can allow 30 participants? Can you help to fix it? Thank you so much.

How did you extend the template for 381 participants? ]]>

based on your template, I have edited a study with 381 participants. even if the number of participants is 381, should I calculate the eigenvalues and weights with the same formula? ]]>
