Abstract

Currently, there are several ways for a metallurgical company to distribute its own products to end customers. A typical example is the construction of steel sales and service centres. One of the strategic decisions related to the creation of those centres is the selection of appropriate locations. The paper presents possibilities of using the PROMETHEE multi-criteria decision making methods in the selection of the most appropriate place for a metallurgical sales center establishment. The aim was to select one of ten possible locations according to seventeen criteria.

Keywords: Metallurgical sales center, Multi-criteria decision making method, PROMETHEE
