This paper describes a real world case of the application of the analytic hierarchy process (AHP), a multi-criterion decision making approach, to the allocation of thousands of software developers to over a hundred development projects. The approach attempts to balance the value of each project to the business with the resources applied to it. Significant cost savings are expected to result from this approach.
