Abstract: This paper attempts to find out the best available alternative material handling system (MHS), an integral component of warehouse operations. Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), a flexible decision making tool for complex, multi-criteria problems and useful to provide management weightage, has been used in this study to develop performance model. The proposed algorithm, used to select the proper MHS is the hybrid of AHP performance model and capital investment. Sensitivity analysis has also been reported for making an eclectic decision. The newly developed method is sound surrogate to the traditional techniques.
