In all production or service-oriented processes, there is a continuous need for upgrading the quality of the produced goods or the service provided. The fast development of IT tools and electronic devices is among the most frequent grounds for decisions to improve such processes. The thesis focuses on a specific production facility in the automotive industry. The potential for upgrading the process with a new machine and the market offer alternatives is assessed. Those with selected criteria are evaluated and finally, a multicriteria ranking of such alternatives is prepared. Research methods include surveys and interviews with the company staff on needs and potentials for process upgrade, a survey on devices available at the market, simulation of the use in the process, an expert judgement of key criteria for selection and valuation of these criteria for defined alternatives, comparative analysis of several multicriteria ranking methods.
