Selection and Comparison of Industrial Robots for Packaging and Palletizing using AHP
Manufacturing companies need robots to perform material-handling tasks in a flexible manufacturing system. Selection of a robot is one of the most difficult problems in todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s manufacturing environment. This problem has become more challenging recently due to increasing specifications and complexity of the robots. This study aims to solve a robot selection problem for material handling task in a flexible manufacturing system. AHP (Analytical Hierarchy Process) is used to select the most convenient robot among three alternatives.
