Application of analytic hierarchy process (AHP) to evaluate technological innovation capability of China’s marine engineering equipment manufacturing industry

The evaluation index system of “Technology Innovation Ability” for China’s Marine Engineering Equipment Manufacturing Industry has been constructed, through the research of the evaluation of “Technology Innovation Capability” and other related research of technology innovation for industries both at home and abroad, then using Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) for the analysis of technology innovation capability according to the questionnaire survey, in order to make a study of technology innovation capability of domestic marine engineering equipment industry. It is shown that the resource input for technology innovation and knowledge transfer and absorptive capacity of technology innovation had did an obvious contribution to “domestic marine engineering equipment industry”, but the capability of supporting for technology innovation and technology output are needed to be improved.
