This study discusses and develops a project selection model for the purchase of diamond cutting machines for 12-in. photovoltaic silicon wafer slicing based on an analytical network process and preference by similarity to ideal solution (ANP-TOPSIS) method. Simultaneously, process capability indices are presented to test and verify the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed method. The proposed method can help decision makers to establish a project evaluation and testing mode to affect and choose the best mode for diamond cutting machines of photovoltaic wafer slicing.
