Abstract

Selection of sustainable material is very essential for the development process of a new product. Therefore, the right decision on selection of the appropriate material is necessary in order to support sustainable development requirements. The main objective this study is to propose a sustainable material selection framework for automotive bumper fascia using analytical hierarchy process (AHP). AHP method helps to perform decision-making process to summarize all the importance of each criterion into one prioritized value. Various factors and sub-factors that influence the selection process were considered. To demonstrate the proposed sustainable material selection framework, six different types of materials were considered. The results revealed that Polyamides, P A6 with 30% GFR is the most appropriate sustainable material for automotive bumper fascia because it has the highest percentage of priority value of 19% compared to the other material. The final judgement of the material is gained by performing 4 scenarios of the sensitivity analysis and the analysis showed that it is proven that P A6 with 30% GFR is the most optimum decision.
