Abstract
The present study examines the various techniques being used to maintain the integrity of the medical devices, and develops a quantitative framework to list these in the sequence of priority. To achieve the intended objective, the study employs the combined procedure of Fuzzy Analytic Network Process (ANP) and Fuzzy Technical for Order Preference by Similarities to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS). We selected fuzzy based decision making techniques for assessing the integrity of medical devices. The suggested methodology was then used for classifying the suitable techniques used to evaluate the integrity of medical devices. Different techniques or the procedures of integrity assessment were ranked according to their satisfaction weights. The rating of the options determined the order of priority for the procedures. As per the findings of the study, among all the options, A1 was assessed to be the most likely option. This means that the integrity of medical devices of A2 is the highest amongst all the chosen alternatives. This analysis will be a corroborative guideline for manufacturers and developers to quantitatively test the integrity of medical devices in order to engineer efficacious devices. The evaluations undertaken with the assistance of the planned procedure are accurate and conclusive. Hence instead of conducting a manual valuation, this experimental study is a better and reliable option for assessing the integrity of the medical devices.
