Song-Kyoo Kim
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 2014, DOI: 10.1155/2014/125950
Abstract: The paper presents the explicit and objective measurement method for innovation performances by using the extensive version of Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). A hierarchical framework is constructed for the innovation performance criteria and giving the guideline for innovation performance of companies. By applying AHP Expansion framework, the innovation performance measurement factors can be prioritized and descending-order rank list of the performance factors can be made in order to select the best strategies to improve the innovativeness of companies. This new framework of innovation measurement is targeted for implementation at the actual analysis for innovation competitiveness of companies and expected to provide the milestones of measuring the innovation more effectively. 1. Introduction Current corporate world understands that innovation is more evident and creating business value is the purpose of innovation. Global companies are focused on making innovation more understandable to be able to manage and improve their business because the companies are facing high competition because of endless globalization. The value of innovation can be considered in many different forms. Regardless of company size, modern companies are driven to survive and to grow. Finding the solution for the rapidly changing market which is to innovative effectively is the way to survive. But most of companies fail to sustain their innovativeness because they miss the critical parts of the equation: metrics and measurements. Innovation uncertainty principle means that the procedure to measure innovation of the company may interrupt the innovation process because innovation by itself involves venture for the unknown factors, and the company could make the unknown factors harder to realize or recognize if the company tries to pin these unknowns down too fast [1]. The criteria to measure the innovation are the critical issue and several researches [2–7] suggest the framework of innovation metric criteria. Innovation can be viewed as having three distinct approaches. There are many alternatives for choosing the innovation metrics but three distinct approaches are appropriate approaches [2–5]. All three components should be measured thoroughly. The practical ways of measuring innovation differ highly from the metrics suggested by theory, through highly unbalanced and seemingly random metrics. There is a need for a framework on how to select which innovation metrics that an organization should use. The aim of creating this framework is to show that despite small changes of the

Abstract: In literature Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is used for decision making. Reliability of the AHP in decision making is proven with many applications. In many prediction processes, Back-Propagation Multi-Layer Perceptron (BPMLP) is a proven and reliable method. A new system for prediction is proposed which uses basic principles of AHP with alterations on criteria and alternative weight determination. Comparison of the prediction results obtained from well known BPMLP and modified AHP showed that; it is possible to use AHP framework for prediction as well.

Abstract: The first part of this text deals with a convention site selection as one of the most lucrative areas in the tourism industry. The second part gives a further description of a method for decision making - the analytic hierarchy process. The basic characteristics: hierarchy constructions and pair wise comparison on the given level of the hierarchy are allured. The third part offers an example of application. This example is solved using the Super - Decision software, which is developed as a computer support for the analytic hierarchy process. This indicates that the AHP approach is a useful tool to help support a decision of convention site selection. .
Evaluating the Effectiveness of the Chemistry Education by Using the Analytic Hierarchy Process  [cached]

International Education Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ies.v5n5p79
Abstract: In this study, an attempt was made to develop a method of measurement and evaluation aimed at overcoming the difficulties encountered in the determination of the effectiveness of chemistry education based on the goals of chemistry education. An Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), which is a multi-criteria decision technique, is used in the present study. The proposed method consists of four main steps: (1) Determination of the main goals and sub-goals of chemistry education; (2) Formation of the AHP model; (3) Making pairwise comparisons and the calculation of local weights; (4) Calculation of global weights and the effectiveness of chemistry education. Research findings indicated that it is possible to determine the effectiveness of chemistry education based on the goals set through the proposed method.
Journal of Sustainability Science and Management , 2012,
Abstract: Evaluation on human-capital development and a knowledge-based economy becomes increasingly important as several approaches have been proposed. One of the popular methods in multi-criteria evaluation is the pair-wise comparison of Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). However, single evaluation in pair-wise comparison of AHP seems not very comprehensive in handling of human judgement. Therefore, this study aims to propose a modified analytical-hierarchy process by considering two-sided conflicting judgement and test the proposed approach to ranking indicators of human capital in Malaysian organisations. The theory of Conflicting Bifuzzy Sets (CBFS) was hybridised into AHP to form a modified version of decision-making tool that employed linguistic judgement and pair-wise comparison. The modified approach was employed to integrate the multi-facets preferences of five criteria of human capital in establishing the importance of the four identified indicators. A case study of human-capital measurement is presented and the proposed model is applied to facilitate the decision-making process. Interviews with three decision-makers were administered to collect linguistic data over the comparative judgement of human-capital measures in Malaysia. The results show that succession rate of training programmes is the most important measurement indicator and creating result by using knowledge is the least-important measurement indicator. The overall ranking reflects the importance of measurement indicators in steering Malaysia to become a worthy human-capital investment.

Abstract: The objective of this study is to compare and rank the 81 provinces of Turkey by using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) in terms of urban sustainability. With this aim, economic, social and environmental sustainability indicators are used. The results indicate that the most sustainable alternative out of 81 is the Eskisehir province. It is followed by ?anakkale, Bursa, ?zmir, Bilecik, Giresun, Edirne, Ankara, Rize and Manisa. On the other hand, Diyarbakir, Mardin, Mu?, Kars, Bitlis, Yozgat, Sanliurfa, Van, and Batman are less sustainable cities, which are located in the eastern part of the country. Furthermore, the sustainability scores of provinces indicate the development gap between the east and the west of the country.

Abstract: A method for introducing the higher order terms in the potential expansion to study the continuous limits of the Toda hierarchy is proposed in this paper. The method ensures that the higher order terms are differential polynomials of the lower ones and can be continued to be performed indefinitly. By introducing the higher order terms, the fewer equations in the Toda hierarchy are needed in the so-called recombination method to recover the KdV hierarchy. It is shown that the Lax pairs, the Poisson tensors, and the Hamiltonians of the Toda hierarchy tend towards the corresponding ones of the KdV hierarchy in continuous limit.

Physics , 1997, DOI: 10.1007/s002200050341
Abstract: In this paper we give a geometric description in terms of the Grassmann manifold of Segal and Wilson, of the reduction of the KP hierarchy known as the vector $k$-constrained KP hierarchy. We also show in a geometric way that these hierarchies are equivalent to Krichever's general rational reductions of the KP hierarchy.
