State of the art technologies are devoted to improving the operational efficiency and subsequent competitiveness of an organisation. The selection process is a tedious, complex and capital intensive task, often based on numerous conflicting factors. Aircraft manufacture requires the selection of potential technologies expected to mature and remain throughout a twentyfive year product lifecycle. It is common for businesses to have guidelines on how technologies are developed once selected; however, it is unclear how technologies were selected due to a lack of methodology and the reliance of internal know-how policies.The purpose of this paper is to provide an insight into the application of the analytic hierarchy process for evaluating and selecting the optimum manufacturing technology in a complex aerospace manufacturing environment. A study was applied at a large European aircraft manufacturer to optimise the ranking process of alternative wing component measurement technologies. Evaluation and selection of manufacturing technologies using the analytic hierarchy process in wing assembly.
