|Abstract:||Studies on choice of technology are aimed at discovering the development-promoting potential of a specific technology. This requires a holistic description of alternative technologies through a unified set of attributes; followed by a ranking of alternatives within a given development perspective. In this paper the problem of choice of technology is viewed as a technology-ranking problem and is studied by relating it to two development perspectives labeled as: 1) regional self-reliant development and 2) market or growth-oriented development. Five technology alternatives in toilet soap-making are ranked by the application of Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). It is shown that the rankings are significantly altered when the development perspective is changed.|
