dc.description.abstractGiven the complex nature of Six Sigma project (SSP) prioritization and selection processes, multicriteria decision-making (MCDM) methods may help organizations identify the most effective projects. Considering potential limitations of subjective methods and advantages of MCDM methods, this article proposes a model that integrates analytical hierarchy process (AHP) and combinative distance-based assessment (CODAS) in SSP prioritization and selection process. In the proposed approach, AHP is employed to assign criteria weights, and CODAS is performed to determine priorities of SSPs. CODAS was advanced in term of its threshold function. Differences between Euclidean distances of two alternatives were compared, based on the standard deviation of Euclidean distances of all alternatives to overcome the subjectivity. This is the first study that combines AHP and CODAS methods for SSP selection, and CODAS is used with objective threshold value computation, and developed for the healthcare industry. In this article, ten SSPs were evaluated for four key criteria groups as financial, operational, patient centric, and organizational main criteria groups. In total, 18 subcriteria were considered under these four main criteria groups. This article provides a support for executives who make implementation plans for the potential SSPs.en_US
