A method to select a computer-family, a group of computers from microcomputer to mainframe with compatible operating systems and software, using an objective evaluation process in developed. Saaty's Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP), for the weighting and ranking process, is applied to the basic methodology presented by Borovitz and Zviran for computer-family selection. The result is a comprehensive methodology to more objectively select a computer-family.
