Introduction: The purpose of this study was prioritizing the noise control methods using Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) technique in Hamadan glass industry.


Material and Method: This is a cross-sectional – descriptive - analytical study. According to a survey of experts by questionnaire and Delphi method four criteria were selected including cost, efficiency, executive capability and not to interfere in the process and eleven alternatives for control options. Prioritizing of the items was conducted based on the study criteria as well as the importance ranking determined in this study.


Result: The results showed all that consistently Ratios were less than 10 % and compatibility of answers has been confirmed. According to expert’s views, the criteria of executive capability (0.277) and using the barrier between the two main sections (0.111) have achieved the highest priority among the criteria and control methods, respectively.


Conclusion: In this study a pattern of decision-making structure was introduced based on Analytic Hierarchy Process for determining the method noise control. This method can improve the decision making process and prioritizing noise control methods as an efficient and effective approach.
