Abstract:In this thesis, configurator types are investigated in order to develop a method that selects configurator types for companies to prevent the selection of unsuitable configurator systems. A method is developed through defining shared characteristics for which the configurator types can be selected and through creating a multi criteria selection process for configurator types with conflicting selection advice. The configurator types with conflicting advice are ranked with the TOPSIS method based on their Euclidean distance to the ideal configurator type’s characteristics. The AHP method is used to determine the importance of the characteristics for which the configurator types with conflicting advice are compared in the TOPSIS method. The validation of the proposed method is done by analysing two existing configurators. In each case, the proposed method is used to create a selection of configurator types which are compared to the analysed configurator types of the existing configurator.
