In this paper, a new approach based on the generalized Purcell method for solving a system of homogenous linear equations is applied to improve near consistent judgment matrices. The proposed method relies on altering the components of the pairwise comparison matrix in such a way that the resulting sequences of improved matrices approach a consistent matrix. The complexity of the proposed method, together with examples, shows less cost and better results in computation than the methods in practice.
