Abstract

Globalization of business, the worldwide competitive economy and the decrease in product life force companies to use new equipments that are continuously introduced to the market with the advances in technology. An improper selection can negatively affect productivity, precision, flexibility and company’s responsive manufacturing capabilities. Thus, selecting the most suitable machine from the increasing number of available machines can be highly demanding. A decision support system is developed for the selection of machine tools. It will guide the selection process and help a decision maker solve the selection problem. Multi-criteria weighted average is used in decision-making process to rank the machines evaluated with respect to several criteria. The method is demonstrated with an example.
