ABSTRACT
The article presents an assessment of the productibility of hybrid nodes. The hybrid node is a new structural element the implementation of which causes numerous (especially technological) problems that need to be solved. The most important element of the hybrid node is the so-called connector, the choice of which is a complex and difficult problem. It involves taking into account many aspects (constructional, strength-related, technological, economic) in order to make sure that the choice is as objective as possible. Therefore, an attempt to acquire a comprehensive view at the problem requires that a set of accurate criteria be used for assessment. In this paper, the author undertakes such an attempt. The expert method presented herein allows for choosing the right connector.
