The decision-making paradox relates to decision-making and the quest for determining reliable decision-making methods.

### Rank reversals in decision-making

A key role in this quest is played by the study of rank reversals in decision making.
After all, determining the best decision making method leads to a decision making paradox.

### Analytic hierarchy process

(AHP)AHPAHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process):
The methods used in that study were the weighted sum model (WSM), the weighted product model (WPM), and two variants of the analytic hierarchy process (AHP). The following multi-criteria decision-making methods have been confirmed to exhibit this paradox:The analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and some of its variants, the weighted product model (WPM), the ELECTRE (outranking) method and its variants and the TOPSIS method.

### Multiple-criteria decision analysis

The decision-making paradox was first described in 1989, and further elaborated in the 2000 book by Triantaphyllou on multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) / multi-criteria decision making (MCDM). The following multi-criteria decision-making methods have been confirmed to exhibit this paradox:The analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and some of its variants, the weighted product model (WPM), the ELECTRE (outranking) method and its variants and the TOPSIS method.

### Decision analysis
