The selection of suitable machine tools for a manufacturing company is one of the
significant points to achieving high competitiveness in the market. Besides, an appropriate choice
of machine tools is very significant as it helps to realize full production quickly. Today's market
offers many more choices for machine tool alternatives. There are also many factors one should
consider as part of the appropriate machine tool selection process, including productivity,
flexibility, compatibility, safety, cost, etc. Consequently, evaluation procedures involve several
objectives, and it is often necessary to compromise among possibly conflicting tangible and
intangible factors. For these reasons, multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) is a useful approach
to solve this kind of problem. Most of the MCDM models are mathematical and ignore qualitative
and often subjective considerations. The use of neutrosophic set theory allows incorporating
qualitative and partially known information into the decision model. This paper describes a
neutrosophic Multi-Objective Optimization on the basis of Ratio Analysis (MOORA) based
methodology for evaluation and selection of vertical CNC machining centers for a manufacturing
company in Tenth of Ramadan, Egypt.
