How can a charity ensure that only its most worthy causes are supported? One approach that has proven effective in the past is AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process). Now a new method – based on a hybrid AHP / Evidential Reasoning (ER) adaptation - has become available, claiming distinct advantages over straight AHP. By contrasting the two procedures for a real-life dataset – we demonstrate AHP/ER’s superiority in both theoretical and practical respects.
