By making full use of the subjective selection ability in the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and the objective ability of digging out source data in the mean variance method, the obtained index weights for impact factors were calculated, reflecting both subjectivity and objectivity.

Segun Saaty (1994), como los juicios y los valores varian de un individuo a otro, para comprenderlos, cooperar con estos y actuar coordinadamente es necesario acudir al Proceso Analitico Jerarquico (Analytic Hierarchy Process, AHP, por sus siglas en ingles), que es una teoria general sobre juicios y valoraciones que proporciona escalas de razon que capturan la realidad percibida, diferente de una asignacion y normalizacion arbitraria de numeros.
Por isso, a metodologia adotada para hierarquizacao e sequenciamento de projetos foi o Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) (Secretaria da Casa Civil, 2014).
