Table 8 Summarized comparative analysis between DEMATEL-ANP and ANP.

From: A contrast between DEMATEL-ANP and ANP methods for six sigma project selection: a case study in healthcare industry

Comparison parameter Comparison between DEMATEL-ANP and ANP
Adequacy to changes of alternatives DEMATEL-ANP is consistent in the project alternative ranking while ANP does not generate consistent preference order.
Adequacy to changes of sub-criteria When new sub-criterion is included, DEMATEL-ANP is more sensible than ANP since it takes into account the interrelations and feedbacks.
Agility in the decision process When a project alternative is included, the number of additional judgements is the same in both methods while if a sub-criteria is included, ANP will require less comparisons than DEMATEL-ANP
