Material selection are plays an important role in the decision-making process in manufacturing organizations. Before production of any product, predominant selections of the parameters are considered so there are minimum chances of failure of the system due to unplanned schedule. There are numerous choices of materials and various criteria influencing the selection of material for a particular application. The problem of selecting a material for an engineering application from among two or more alternatives on the basis of several criteria can be treated as a multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) problem. There are some MCDM techniques such AHP, ANP, TOPSIS. This study explores the ranking method for selecting the priority parameter for manufacturing of an axle for a motorcycle from various criteria using “Analytical hierarchy process (AHP)” and Analytical Network Process (ANP)”.
