Optimization of green electro-discharge machining using VIKOR

Yadav , Sushil Kumar (2013) Optimization of green electro-discharge machining using VIKOR. MTech thesis.



In the present study an efficient Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) approach has been proposed for optimization of green electro-discharge machining, because it is a commonly used non-traditional machining process. Green electro-discharge machining is a MultiCriteria Decision Making (MCDM) problem influenced by multiple performance criteria/attributes. These criteria attributes are of two types, qualitative and quantitative. Qualitative criteria estimates are generally based on previous experience and expert opinion on a suitable conversion scale. This conversion is based on human judgment; therefore, obtained result may not be accurate always. These are analyzed using AHP, QFD, Fuzzy techniques etc. reported in literature. So to find the solution of MCDM problems there should be converted quantitative criteria values into an equivalent single performance index called Multi-attribute Performance Index (MPI). Selection of the best alternative can be made in accordance with the MPI values of all the alternatives. In this text, present study highlights application of VIKOR method adapted from MCDM techniques for obtaining the accurate result. Detail methodology of VIKOR method has been illustrated in this report through a case study.
