Multi-Criteria Decision Making for PLM Maturity Analysis based on an Integrated Fuzzy AHP and VIKOR Methodology
A wide range of product lifecycle management (PLM) maturity models are proposed to assess the relative position of companies on their road to complete PLM implementation. However, it is a tough job for the company to dynamically evaluate the gradual process of PLM maturity by using existing values and accurately make decisions of improving PLM maturity by selecting the optimum alternative. A fuzzy PLM components maturity model (PCMA) is presented to build the internal logical relationship between maturity levels and existing values that can automatically predict the unknown PLM maturity levels. A fuzzy AHP-VIKOR methodology is used to make a decision among option PLM strategies. The weights of the criteria are determined by fuzzy pairwise comparison matrices (PCM). The weights of alternatives with respect to criteria are calculated by fuzzy VIKOR. The fuzzy AHP-VIKOR is a compromise solution and has the ability of transfer subjective and implicit linguistics into objective and transparent data. A numerical example illustrates and clarifies the running steps of the proposed methodology. 2018 World Scientific Publishing Company.
