This research is concerned in showing the importance of material selection in
production design stage, the factors that involved the material selection strategies and
its criteria and the modern approach of materials selection since there are many
techniques of material selection. The proposal work helps in choosing the following
appropriate techniques from many quantitative ones. The following techniques
(Geometrical approach, Algebraic Approach), were included in the work the
developed system solves the selection techniques and introduce the best material from
a database contains the steel family.
The case study was examined from the real world of manufacturing and
satisfactory results were obtained. The developed algorithm is being to build Material
Selection Techniques system called MASTECH which incorporates making decision
on materials selection.
In the research, MASTECH system has been developed to aid both designers
and manufacturing engineers in choosing the most suitable material.
