Mobile ad hoc networks [MANET] are typically characterized by high mobility and frequent link failures that result in low throughput and high end-to-end delay. Present approaches to multipath routing make use of pre-computed routes determined during route discovery. All the paths are maintained by means of periodic update packets unicast along each path. In existing method best path is determined and maintained only with signal strength of disjoint paths. Signal strength between nodes is only the mobility prediction factor, which does not address the durability and stability of paths. Residual energy of nodes determines stability of path contains those nodes. Also does not consider the consistency of node through the previous behaves. This paper provides a design and a simulation frame work for measuring a Decision Value metric for mobility prediction of each alternate paths in MANET. Here a Periodic update packets measure Decision Value metric [DVM] and route maintenance is possible by means of the Signal strength between nodes, Residual energy and Consistency of each hop along the alternate paths, helps protocol to select the best scalable paths.
