A novel application of Best Worst Method (BWM) enables one to incorporate the complexity of specific sub-criteria of technological development to assess its maturity with the pre-established Technology Readiness Level (TRL) framework. It utilizes the concept of Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) methods to determine the cardinality of endpoint quantitative processes. The model is used to determine the maturity of Class II Ventilators and to detect the consistency aspects for their selection.
