عنوان مقاله [English]
Since decision-making is the most important task in organizations, selection of an appropriate & comprehensive methodology to make accurate decisions, is critical. One of the practical techniques of Multi-Criteria Decision-Making is Analytical Network Process (ANP). In this paper, the literature of studies on ANP is reviewed and its different applications are discussed. In other words, we focus on applications of ANP and categorize different researches done in this field to present its wide range of applications. The purpose of the paper is to review ANP researchers in service and production centers, business and marketing, knowledge management, natural resources, location allocation, strategy and supplier selection.
