Abstract:

It is obvious that the people in the security sector are at more risk than other individuals in different job disciplines in society due to their working conditions. For this reason, it is expected that individuals working in the security sector to choose a weapon to be suitable for the field of use as a decision maker. In recent years, Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) has been a field of interest where researchers have been increasingly studying on due to its simplicity, ease to understand, and also ease of implementation. MCDM methods also help the decision maker to choose the best alternative by evaluating conflicting criteria. In this study, a solution proposal is presented to decision makers using AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) and TOPSIS (Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution) method. First of all, criteria and alternatives are obtained using the fishbone diagram at the end of the wide participation brainstorming meetings with individuals working in the security sector. The criteria weight values are calculated by the AHP method, then alternatives are ranked by using the TOPSIS method. It is considered that the findings obtained through the study will contribute to the decision makers to be more careful in selecting weapons, especially against the hazards arising from machine and human errors. In addition, the findings obtained from this study are considered to contribute positively to management and production processes in order to obtain better quality products by the companies operating in the arms sector.
