Consistency-driven Pairwise Comparisons Approach to Abandoned Mines Hazard Rating

Last modified: 2016-08-12


The pairwise comparisons method, together with inconsistency analysis, are used to assess the hazard level for abandoned mines. Weights, reflecting the relative importance of the objectives concerned are one of the most commonly used solutions for this type of data. Subjective as- sessments involve inaccuracy (which is difficult to manage) and inconsistency in assessments (which can be measured and may influence the accuracy). The pairwise comparisons method allows us to define a consistency measure and use it as a validation technique. A consistency- driven knowledge acquisition, supported by a properly designed software, contributes to the improvement of quality of knowledge-based systems.
