MULTICRITERIAL SELECTION OF PLASTIC MATERIALS IN THE DESIGN PROCESS
The choice of plastic materials in the design activity is based on technical properties as well as on aesthetic and environmental properties. The multitude of properties considered, as well as the variety of applications in which plastics are used, make their choice difficult. In this study it is presented an application which makes it easy to choose plastic materials, using a multitude of combinations of criteria.
Key words: multicriterial selection, plastics material, design
