The project is entitled “Development of a System to Establish Control over Mechanical Part Production in Defense Industry” and will be carried out at FENS for a period of 24 months. The aim of the project is to develop a smart decision support system for procurement operations of precise and complex mechanical parts used in defense industry.

Thanks to this system, procurement processes will be supported by a smart decision-making approach, enhancing efficiency of procurement operations and matching suppliers with projects that fit their capabilities to strengthen their specialization.

With the cost-oriented procurement decision-making support system, a classification model that also considers infrastructure capability and success scores of side-industry companies in defense sector will be developed for the first time in Turkey.
