Abstract

Current demands, originating in global markets, upon manufacturing industries have promoted the enactment of strategic measures commonly directed toward improving production resources. This has led to the necessity of critical capital investment evaluations of various automation alternatives by many corporations. This paper present a methodology which enables corporate decision makers to evaluate and select the appropriate automation systems to implement from a list of potential candidates. The methodology uses a two phased approach and two sets of ordinal scale measures to weight the intangible benefits resulting from implementation of automation alternatives from the standpoint of both strategic and tactical considerations.
