Overview

This book aimed to develop methods and tools for supporting maintenance management system for transportation. This is done by using Multicriteria Decision Making Process techniques. Also analytic hierarchy process (AHP) were applied to evaluate the techniques that are used for maintaining the road pavements. Software named AHPM (Analytic Hierarchy Process Model) was developed using MATLAB for flexible pavement. The first step in the AHP procedure is to decompose the decision problem into a hierarchy that consists of the most important elements of the decision problem. In developing a hierarchy identified the objective, factors and alternatives. The hierarchy model of a decision problem is the objective of the decision at the top level and then descends downwards lower level of decision factors until the level of attributes is reached. Each level is linked to the next higher level.
