Abstract

This paper has described the statistical modeling approach that effectively test the validation of Multi-criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) models such as Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) method for decision-making. A pairwise comparison questionnaire was designed to get experts opinion related with land suitability analysis of hillside development. The collected weights of suitability criteria and sub-criteria using questionnaire were analyzed into an Expert Choice decision support software. To validate MCDA methods, statistical methods were used to enhance reliability of decision-making process. This approach can be guidance to the researchers who are involved in hillside land suitability analysis modelling.
