Abstract

This research presents a decision support methodology for selection decisions in which Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) model is used to prioritize main industries in Gaza Strip not only from the view point of a single stakeholder and a single criteria, but also from that of multiple stakeholders and multiple criteria. Literature review, in addition to experts’ interviews were used to identify the main selection criteria and sub-criteria. These main criteria are economic criteria, financial criteria, marketing, technical, political and social, and environmental criteria. In addition, the alternatives were identified via Palestinian Federation of Industries (PFI). These alternatives are food industries, garment industries, chemical industries, plastic industries, wood industries, metal industries, and construction industries. Results show that different stakeholders choose different alternatives. The aggregate ranking of the industries under consideration is as follows: food, garment, construction, wood, chemical, metal, and plastics.
