Abstract: 

Partnership with an engineering company is mostly a prerequisite of bidding EPC projects and most of the EPC projects are implemented by project oriented joint ventures. The problem of picking up appropriate engineering company is a multi criteria decision that has many uncertainties in its nature.
Current paper attempts to propose a fuzzy AHP model for selecting engineering partner selection. Developed model applies Buckley's fuzzy AHP method in a multi stage partner selection problem. The model uses trapezoidal fuzzy membership functions and derives fuzzy weights and performance scores from geometric mean method. The fuzzy AHP calculations where done by a program coded in MATLAB 7.1.
 Developed fuzzy AHP engineering partner selection model has been implemented in a case study and experts showed enthusiasm applying the model and verified its results.
