After many hours of work, I released a new version of my free AHP online system AHP-OS. The whole package was restructured in preparation to make it available for an installation on any other web server.
Beside a lot of under-the-hood improvements, the software now runs under php 7.2 and sqlite 3.10. It should be faster than before. I also prepared to switch from sqlite to MariaDB 10 SQL database, as the number of users is increasing steadily, and the sqlite file getting larger and larger.
For you, as a user, an additional feature has been implemented. You can now close a project for further pairwise comparison inputs. Once closed, participants can no longer input data.
The project status can be toggled between open/closed in the project administration menu.
The project status is shown in your AHP project list as 1 – open, 0 – closed.
As a project author you can now also start pairwise comparisons directly from the Project administration Menu.
New Web Address
AHP-OS can now be easily accessed via the subdomain ahp.bpmsg.com . The package was moved from bpmsg.com/academic to bpmsg.com/ahp. If you have bookmarked the old address, you will be automatically redirected.
Concepts, Methods and Tools to manage Business Performance
Dear Friends, dear Visitors,
The latest beta version of my AHP online software (AHP-OS) has now additional features to manage complete AHP projects. AHP stands for Analytic Hierarchy Process, and is a decision support tool. To use the full functionality, please register and log in; it’s all free.
You can store complete decision hierarchies, use them to estimate the weights of criteria and sub-criteria and evaluate up to seven decision alternatives.
AHP is also helpful to support group decision making; participants can input their individual judgments and a consolidated group result is calculated. I have prepared a practical example, where you can participate, input your judgments and view the overall group results and consensus. Just click on the link and try it out.
The development is still continuing. I am further optimizing the handling and plan to implement additional analysis, especially for group decision making. Bookmark the page and revisit from time to time to get the latest updates.
Now please enjoy your visit on the site and feel free to give me feedback – it is always appreciated.

With the latest update of my free web based AHP software you can now manage complete projects and group sessions. To use the full functionality, register a new account (It’s all free!) I had to implement the registration in order to manage and protect the data.
After login the project session page will be shown. Here your AHP projects are listed in a table, each of them with a unique session code.
A click on the session code will then open the project, either in the hierarchy display mode (the project has yet no participants), where you can modify and update the hierarchy structure, or in the group result mode, where you get the consolidated group result of all participants with a breakdown by categories and individual participants.
The project menu allows you to view project details, start a new hierarchy or delete existing projects.
After you have defined a new hierarchy, click on Save/Start new Group session. Enter a project short description, click Go, Ok and done, and the new project is saved in you project list.
Let me know in case you face any problems. A short description of the program as pdf can be found on the AHP-OS start page.
With the latest version of my free AHP software you can manage complete AHP projects, including the handling of group sessions. In order to use the full functionality, you need to register (it’s free). You can find the manual there.
