Industrial robots have different capabilities and features according to their application areas and requirements. In a sector with highly specialized processes such as aerospace industry, accurate selection of an industrial robot to meet the requirements is a very complex and difficult process. The main challenge is that there are many appropriate robots for the aircraft manufacturing and assembly processes. In addition many technical criteria should be evaluated for determining the most appropriate robot among the industrial robots. In this study the MOORA and TOPSIS method, which are multi-criteria decision making methods are presented for the selection of appropriate industrial robots in the aerospace industry. A real case study related to the application of the methods is also included in the paper content.
