    Abstract

    This paper analyses the process of formulating and evaluating an appropriate maintenance strategy using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) methodology in a group decision making environment The work presented is based on the process of formulating a maintenance strategy which involves several key decision makers in a leading automotive manufacturing company. The AHP methodology was developed to systematise the decision process. Whilst, the work is based on this application, the methodology used was constructed to provide a generic framework for the formulation of maintenance strategy. The effects on group decision making for such an application are discussed. The AHP has enabled subjective decisions to be made by a group through a vigorous and structured process involving sometimes conflicting personal objectives within a multiple criteria decision process.
