A DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM FRAMEWORK FOR LOCALISATION INVESTMENT SELECTION
Keywords:Localisation, Sector development, Tooling, Decision Support System, Multi Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA)
Formulating localisation strategies is crucial to ensuring the development of local suppliers, which in turn results in job creation, increased export earnings, and local and national economic growth. The aim of this article is to present a generic decision support system (DSS) to guide localisation decision-making. Multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) is used to develop the model, which is then applied to a biometric identity management system (BIMS) case study that places the study within the context of the tool, die and mould-making (TDM) industry of South Africa.
