DS/AHP is a technique for multi-criteria decision making (MCDM), based on the Dempster-Shafer Theory of evidence (DST) and the Analytic Hi-erarchy Process (AHP). Since its introduction it has been developed and ap-plied by a number of authors, as well as form the foundation for other DST re-lated MCDM techniques. This paper reviews the evolution and impact of DS/AHP, culminating in a critical perspective, over relevant criteria, namely i) Ease of understanding, ii) A champion, iii) Software development and iv) Its pertinent development, for its position in the area of MCDM. The critical per-spective will include the impacting role DST has had in the evolution of DS/AHP. The lessons learnt, or not learnt, will be of interest to any reader un-dertaking research with strong influence from DST-based methodologies.
