Industrial districts -- Turkey -- Planning, Capital investments -- Decision making, Hierarchical Decision Model
Especially in developing countries, the use of limited public resources for infrastructure in industry, which is critical sector for the development, is a process that needs to be carefully planned. In Turkey, this planning application has been developed in producing cheap industrial parcels to potential investors in certain areas of the regions.
Since Industrial Zones are so specific and narrow topic for Turkey, there is an evident need for comprehensive studies on it. Thus, this study aims creation of a hierarchical decision model (HDM) to weight the prospectives and their criteria, which are produced according to the context of a comprehensive literature search and expert panel commentary on the topic, for an optimal location of Industrial Zones in Turkey. Prospectives were determined as regional, social, industrial, zonal, economical and potential.
According to the results of this model, ranking of the prospectives lined up regional and economical (same rates), industrial and potential (same rates), zonal and social. For criteria, establish the necessity to establish an industrial zone, benefits to the investor and benefits to the region are the top three criteria with rates all same.
