Fork for round precision result

```const linearAlgebra = require('linear-algebra')();
const Matrix = linearAlgebra.Matrix; `

const ahp = require('ahp-lite');```

# AHP Lite

This is a simplified implementation in Javascript for NodeJS of the algorithm AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Proccess) created by Saaty in 1986. This method is utilised in the field of prescriptive analytics, operations research, decision science and managerial accouting to methodically asign weighting to conflicting criteria based on systematic and hierchical subjective judgement.

## Installation

`npm i ahp`

## Example Usage

```const c = new Matrix([[1, 0.33, 0.2], [3, 1, 0.14], [5, 7, 1]]); // Criteria assessment matrix.

ahp.getWeights(c);```

Returns:

`{ ev: [ 0.1, 0.19, 0.71 ], ci: 0.12, cr: 0.21 }`

## Documentation

INPUT

Argument Description Mandatory Type Rules
c c argument stands for 'criteria matrix' and is a matrix that contains the data from comparative judgement between criteria based on Saaty scale. (READ BIBLIOGRAPHY) True Matrix of numeric data This argument MUST be a matrix object from linear-algebra module and MUST contain only numeric data.

OUTPUT

Property Description Type
ev ev property stands for 'eigenvector' and is an array that contains the weights of each criteria. Array of numeric data.
ci ci property stands for 'consistency index' this is an indicator of inconsistency. Float number.
cr cr property stands for 'consistency ratio' this is the standarised indicator of inconsistency, higher than 0.2 should be reviewed. Float number.
