  • A combined fuzzy AHP-simulation approach to CAD software selection 

    Authors:Ayaǧ, Zeki
    Publisher and Date:(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2010)
    In this paper a combined approach where the fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and simulation come together is presented to select the best computer-aided design (CAD) software out of the available options in the market. The fuzzy AHP is used due to the vagueness and uncertainty of the judgements of a decision maker(s) because the crisp pair-wise comparison in the conventional AHP seems to be insufficient and imprecise to capture the right judgements of the decision maker(s). In this study ...

  • A hybrid approach to machine-tool selection through AHP and simulation 

    Authors:Ayaǧ, Zeki
    Publisher and Date:(Taylor & Francis, 2007)
    The selection process of a machine tool has been a critical issue for companies for years because the improper selection of a machine tool might cause many problems having a negative effect on productivity precision flexibility and a company's responsive manufacturing capabilities. Therefore in this paper to determine the best machine tool satisfying the needs and expectations of a manufacturing organization among a set of possible alternatives in the market a hybrid approach is proposed which ...
