ABSTRACT
In this era of Industrialization every company is trying to develop their manufacturing process better and better. Electroplating is one of the important processes in manufacturing company like automobile, ship, airspace, machinery, electronics, jewelry, defense, toy industries, etc. It is generally used to alter the characteristics of a surface to provide improved appearance, ability to withstand corrosive agents, resistance to abrasion, or other desired properties. In time of selecting metal for the electroplating process, it is necessary to compare their characteristics in a decisive way and should be taken into account other conflicting criteria that can influence the process. Multiple attribute decision making method can be used to solve this problem. In this paper, VIKOR method along with Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) is used as multiple attribute decision making method to select the appropriate metal for the electroplating process. AHP is used to calculate the weight of the criteria and by using these weights VIKOR is used to rank the alternatives. Finally the proposed model has been presented for the selection of appropriate electroplating material.
