ANP SOLVER is a free for academic use software tool that implements the Analytic Network Process developed by Thomas Saaty in 1996. For more on ANP theory click here.

The aim of ANP SOLVER is to provide a reliable and user friendly tool that gets as input the model and the decision maker's judgments and produces as output the final results by automating the needed calculations and consistency and completeness checks. It is especially appropriate for teaching purposes as it sequencially presents the steps of the ANP method.

ANP SOLVER provides a way to get the created model as well as intermediate and final results in a form that will permit further analysis or usage as input to other software tools.

ANP SOLVER provides the user with a reliable way to:

- Design the problem's model, thus create, modify and delete clusters and nodes,

- Set and modify elements/nodes relationships,

- Get automatically computed the derived cluster relationships,

- Set the pairwise comparisons values as needed based on the model created,

- Check the consistency of the entered judgments,

- Check the completeness and validity of the values that are entered in each step,

- Perform all the needed computational steps in order to get the Supermatrix, Cluster Matrix, Weighted Supermatrix and finally the Limit Matrix containing the final results of the problem.

ANP SOLVER runs on Windows All.

 

The main executable and the user guide can be downloaded by clicking:

The software is provided "as is", without any further support.

 

ANP SOLVER was developed as a part of the Dissertation of Elena Rokou with the title "Development of software tool to support the analytical network process (ANP) for the evaluation of project portfolio".

Project Supervision: Assistant Professor Dr. Konstantinos Kirytopoulos, Dr Dimitra Voulgaridou

Programming and system implementation: Elena Rokou
