One of the common problems in manufacturing firms is selecting the best
manufacturing system with regard to firm capabilities, market situation,
competitors and political and economical issues. Just-In-Time system is one of
the best manufacturing systems, which has many benefits. In contrast;
implementation of this system is very difficult because of various constraints.
Therefore, manufacturing managers encounter the problem of using or
not using this system in their firm. In this article, a decision making model
based on Analytic Network Process (ANP) is presented for analyzing this
problem in a printing factory for finding the appropriate manufacturing
strategy. To sum up, the decision making criteria were determined by
studying the literature, relevant articles and using Nominal Group Technique
among the experts. Then, the related decision making model was prepared
by expert interviews. Finally, the best strategy was selected by paircomparison
and solving the model.
