Due to their high importance in water supply projects, both investment-wise and hydraulically, the selection of pipe material plays a crucial role in the success of the project. Consequently, a wrong selection of the pipe material can have major implications not only for project cost and duration but also for the post-commissioning operations and maintenance phases. Therefore, it is essential to devise a methodology in order to ensure that the selection of the most appropriate pipe material in a water supply project is based on key project and pipe characteristics. The present study proposes a framework based on Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) using the data from a water supply project in India. The results demonstrated mild steel pipes as the most preferred choice for the given project. It is believed that the suggested approach will assist the organisations in making a right decision while selecting pipe material in their water supply projects.
