Sports have evolved into a more professional and industrial sector in the last decades and the usage of analytical decision making methods in sports clubs has gained importance than ever. Decision makers in sports clubs have to make many decisions about their logistics activities. In sports clubs, decision making of transportation of a team to the games is a complex problem that needs to be solved carefully. In this study, a Multi-Criteria Decision Making method has been proposed to solve the transportation problem of sports clubs. This problem has not been addressed for sports clubs in the literature. In this study, a two-step method is proposed to solve the problem. Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is used to determine the criteria weights and ELECTRE is used to order transportation alternatives from the best to the worst. To test the proposed method, a real-life case study is presented. In this real problem, the best transportation option among various alternatives such as outsourcing or buying large, medium or small sized buses for the senior team of a volleyball branch of a Turkish sports club is chosen. The criteria are determined as cost, comfort level, time and prestige. The case study revealed that the decision makers in the club should revise their logistics decisions as the best decision is to buy a large sized bus instead of outsourcing buses per game basis.
Son yıllarda, spor daha profesyonel ve endüstriyel bir sektör haline gelmiş ve spor kulüplerinde analitik karar verme yöntemlerinin kullanımı çok daha önemli hale gelmiştir. Spor kulüplerinde, takımın maçlara taşınmasına karar verilmesi dikkatle çözülmesi gereken karmaşık bir problemdir. Bu çalışmada, spor kulüplerinin maçlara ulaştırılması probleminin çözümü için bir çok kriterli karar verme yöntemi önerilmiştir. Bu problem, spor kulüpleri için literatürde daha önce ele alınmamıştır. Bu çalışmada, problemin çözümü için iki aşamalı bir yöntem önerilmiştir. Analitik Hiyerarşi Süreci kriterlerin ağırlıklarının belirlenmesinde kullanılmış ve ELECTRE de taşıma alternatiflerinin en iyiden en kötüye sıralanmasında kullanılmıştır. Önerilen yöntemi test etmek üzere, gerçek bir vaka çalışması sunulmuştur. Bu gerçek vaka çalışmasında, bir Türk spor kulübünün voleybol branşındaki üst yaş takımı için en iyi taşıma alternatifi büyük, orta boy veya küçük otobüslerin dış kaynak kullanımı veya satın alımı gibi bir çok alternatif arasından seçilmiştir. Kriterler maliyet, konfor düzeyi, zaman ve prestij olarak belirlenmiştir. Bu vaka çalışması, en iyi kararın otobüsleri maç başına kiralamak yerine büyük otobüs satın almak olması nedeniyle kulüpteki karar vericilerin lojistik kararlarını değiştirmelerinin gerektiğini ortaya çıkarmıştır.
