As one of the most important components of machine tool, guideway has an important driving force to comprehensively improve the remanufacturability of machine tools. To select optimal guideway for machine tool remanufacturing, an integrated multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) approach that combines improved analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and connection degree-based technique of ranking preferences by similarity to the ideal solution (CD-TOPSIS) method is proposed. The improved AHP is employed to calculate the weights of each criterion and the CD-TOPSIS is adapted to complete the task of sorting; finally, the comprehensive evaluation of the alternatives is carried out. A case study, i.e. eight types of guideways, is illustrated to verify the proposed MCDM method. In addition, comparison with existing methods is performed to validate the effective and reliability for the proposed hybrid approach. Also, sensitivity analysis is provided to evaluate the robustness of the method. The final result shows the method provides reliable decision support for the selection of machine tool guideways for remanufacturing.
