In all processes, decisions are made to select, evaluate and progress.
Multi-Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM) methods have been used in
several industries to make reliable decisions under multiple conflicting
criteria. In the automotive industry, MCDM methods have predominantly
been used in supplier selection problems. This study uses the Analytical
Hierarchy Process (AHP) and the Preference Ranking Organisation
Method for Enrichment Evaluation (PROMETHEE) methods for selecting
the most suitable automobile for consumers. AHP was used to attribute
weights for each criterion. Three subject matter experts were involved in
the study to evaluate the importance of each criterion. PROMETHEE was
used to rank seven alternatives under nine criteria. This study provides an
insight into the use of MCDM methods in the selection of an automobile.
