Practical Decision Making:An Introduction to The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) Using SuperDecisions 2. 2 SpringerBriefs in Operations Research. 1st ed. 2017 Enrique Mu, Milagros Pereyre-Rojas
This book offers a simple introduction to the fundamentals and applications of the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) without a pre-requisite for a sophisticated mathematical background. It provides a quick and intuitive understanding of the methodology using spreadsheet examples and explains in a step-by-step fashion how to use Super Decisions, a freely available software developed by the Creative Decisions Foundations. The book is intended to be a resource for decision makers with little or no exposure to the field of Operations Research (OR); however, the book can be used as a very gentle introduction to the AHP methodology and/or as an AHP hands-on supplement for standard OR textbooks. AHP is an intuitive and mathematically simple methodology in the field of multi-criteria decision making. Because of this, most AHP books assume the reader has basic OR mathematical background. However, AHP simplicity suggests that decision makers from all disciplines can take advantage of the methodology without struggling with the mathematics behind it. To fulfill this need, this book delivers a quick and practical understanding of the method that can be useful for corporate executives.

Statistics for Public Administration, Practical Uses for Better Decision Making: CTI Reviews
In the past decade there has been a worldwide evolution in evidence-based medicine that focuses on real-world Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) to compare the effects of one medical treatment versus another in real world settings. While most of this burgeoning literature has focused on research findings, data and methods, Howard Birnbaum and Paul Greenberg (both of Analysis Group) have edited a book that provides a practical guide to decision making using the results of analysis and interpretation of CER. Decision Making in a World of Comparative Effectiveness contains chapters by senior industry executives, key opinion leaders, accomplished researchers, and leading attorneys involved in resolving disputes in the life sciences industry. The book is aimed at users and decision makers involved in the life sciences industry rather than those doing the actual research. This book appeals to those who commission CER within the life sciences industry (pharmaceutical, biologic, and device manufacturers), government (both public and private payers), as well as decision makers of all levels, both in the US and globally. Dr. Birnbaum is a Principal at Analysis Group. Dr. Birnbaums professional interest is performing economic investigations regarding the comparative effectiveness and value of medical services and products and health economics of specific conditions using real world data from administrative claims files, medical records, and surveys of patients and physicians, as well as clinical trial data. He has conducted health economics and outcomes research across a broad range of physical and mental disorders for pharmaceutical and biotechnology manufacturers, managed care organizations, and government agencies, as well as provided expert testimony and litigation support in matters regarding Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement and managed care issues. Dr. Birnbaum has published numerous articles in leading medical, health economics, and managed care journals on a wide range of conditions. Dr. Birnbaum also serves on the editorial board of PharmacoEconomics , and is a member of the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) Institutional Council. Mr. Greenberg is the Director of Analysis Groups Health Care Practice and specializes in health economics, both in health outcomes research and in complex business litigation. He consults to pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies concerning the health economics profiles of specific diseases and medical products. Mr. Greenberg has overseen cost-of-illness research relating to numerous physical and psychiatric disorders, as well as pharmacoeconomic assessments of the cost-effectiveness of drugs based on data gathered in clinical trials and administrative claims files. Mr. Greenberg also draws upon the methodological tools and data sources used in health outcomes research to analyze problems that emerge in litigation. He currently serves on the editorial boards of PharmacoEconomics, Journal of Medical Economics , and Expert Opinion on Pharmacotherapy.
Sich einen Todesstern aus Star Wars in echt zu bauen ist ein ziemlich aufwendiges Projekt. Ein paar Ingenieure haben ausgerechnet, dass man so etwa 852.000.000.000.000.000 Dollar hinblättern müsste - nur für den Stahl. Zum Glück haben wir ein paar Star Wars-Figuren aus Metall, die bedeutend billiger zu haben sind.Wir haben unterschiedliche Motive aus den sechs Filmen. Die Teile werden für die Modelle aus zwei Bögen Stahl heraus gedrückt, und dann muss nur noch der richtige Dorn in das richtige Loch. Die Modelle bestehen aus vielen Teilen, einige muss man biegen, andere brechen - aber solange du gerne selber baust, schaffst du das auch ohne die Hilfe deines Jedi-Meisters. Produktmerkmale Star Wars Metallmodelle:Star Wars-Figuren - zum selber bauen!Die Einzelteile befinden sich auf zwei BögenHergestellt aus dünnem StahlPasst in eine HandflächeBauzeit: ab 3 StundenEmpfohlen ab 14 JahrenEmpfehlenswerte Werkzeuge (nicht enthalten): Pinzette und kleine ZangeDie Modelle sind 7-10 cm groß
