APPLICATION OF ANALYTIC NETWORK PROCESS: WEIGHTING OF SELECTION CRITERIA TO SELECT THE SUITABLE METHOD FOR THE PREPARATION OF NANOCRYSTALSAbstract
This article presents a logical technique to select the best method for the preparation of nanocrystals by implementing the analytic network process. One of the most significant decision-making tools to make excellent decisions is Analytic Network Process which includes Model construction, Paired assessments between each two clusters or node, Super matrix assessment based on outcomes from paired comparisons, and result investigation for the evaluation. So in order to avoid wrong conclusions, we use the Analytic Network Process tool because it is well organized and logical compared to other decision-making techniques. Based on the results of the overall priority analysis, the alternative M2 Sonoprecipitation method scores 0.088857, which is highest when compared to other alternatives. This study reveals that the Sonoprecipitation method is the most appropriate technique for the preparation of Nanocrystals. This paper concludes that ANP evolved by Saaty is a good decision-making device, done by using a software super decision which is very easy to make the right decision and conclusion. With the outcome of ANP method and Super decision software, the study reveals that Sonoprecipitation method is the most suitable method for the preparation of nanocrystals since it has the highest value compared to other methods. Hence to obtain reliable and efficient decisions, ANP has been employed.
