This study presents a hybrid fuzzy multi criteria decision making approach to evaluate technology competency of Turkish manufacturing sector. Financial and non-financial performance criteria of companies have basically been used to evaluate the company‘s financial situation and performance. This study evaluates technology competency level of Turkish manufacturing companies with respect to current and past data by using multi criteria decision making approaches. Fuzzy analytic hierarchy process is utilized for determining the importance weights of the technology competency evaluation criteria. Then the ranking of the manufacturing companies is evaluated by Vise Kriterijumska Optimizacija I Kompromisno Resenje (VIKOR) and Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) approaches. The proposed approaches are used as a benchmarking for the heavy manufacturing companies related to technology competency level.
