Application of an Artificial Intelligence Decision-Making Method for the Selection of Maintenance Strategy
Multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) methods have been extensively used in different types of engineering applications. Therefore, the viability and reliability of the methods are always considered as a requirement in order to be adopted in different situations. Best worst method (BWM) which has recently been introduced to increase the consistency and uniformity of MCDM, using a multi-objective mathematical programming, has enough capability to determine the optimum results in a decision making problem. The study aims to utilize the BWM to select and prioritize maintenance strategy in offshore operation. In this respect, a group of decision makers participated in the assessment by expressing their opinions. Typically, if the final evaluation result is close to each expert’s opinion, subsequently the expert will accept it. Due to the fact that, BWM results in the optimum values; the results would be accepted by all the experts that have participated in the study.
