A demand matching oriented Multi-Criteria Decision-Making method is presented to identify the best collection mode for used components. In this method, the damage condition and remaining service life are incorporated into the evaluation criteria of reuse mode, then a hybrid method (AHP-EW) integrating Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Entropy Weight (EW) is used to derive the criteria weights and the grey Multi-Attributive Border Approximation Area Comparison (MABAC) is adopted to rank the collection modes. Finally, a sensitivity analysis is used to test the stability of the method and a demands-matching method is proposed to validate the feasibility of the optimal alternative. The method is validated using the collection of used pressurizers as case study. The results of which show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
