Ranking of the factors makes it easier to apply the Saaty's AHP method with a 9-point scale, where 1 represents "equally important", 3 represents "slightly more important", 5 represents "strongly more important", 7 represents "demonstratedly more important", and, 9 represents "absolutely more important", whereas 2, 4, 6, 8 denote the degrees of importance between 1 and 3, 3 and 5, 5 and 7, and 7 and 9, respectively (Saaty 1980, 1990; Podvezko 2007, 2009; Podvezko et al.
