Additive layer or rapid prototyping processes are viable substitutes of conventional manufacturing processes to produce quality parts made of metals and plastics. Same as advanced machining processes, this is an advanced manufacturing process used to manufacture engineered parts and components for various commercial, domestic, and industrial applications. The manufacturing quality of the parts made by these processes is very much dependent on process parameter optimum combinations particular to material and part geometry. This chapter discusses the application, implementation, and effectiveness of multi-criteria decision-making techniques to optimize fused deposition modeling (FDM)-type rapid prototyping process. The results of experimental study-based optimization of FDM process reveal the suitability of fuzzy integrated M-COPRAS technique to optimize parameters for improved strength, dimensional accuracy of FDM made parts and process productivity.
