CORTES ALDANA, Félix Antonio; GARCIA MELON, Mónica e ARAGONES BELTRAN, Pablo. Using multi-criteria decision-making for selecting broad-band technology for the National University of Colombia, Bogotá. Ing. Investig. [online]. 2007, vol.27, n.1, pp. 132-137. ISSN 0120-5609.
The National University of Colombia, Bogotá, has proposed a project for improving Internet access by using broad band technology. Four possible technologies have been selected in the first step: LMDS, ADSL, cable modem and optical fibre. The analytic hierarchy process (AHP) has been applied for taking such decision. This method, based on multi criteria decision analysis (MCDA) allows decision-taking criteria to be established, pondered and the alternatives evaluated regarding the priorities established for each criterion. Different experts opinions have been considered as support during the decision-making process. MCDA was used for ranking these alternatives. AHP was used for helping such decision-making.
