In this article, the study consists in selecting the best of secondary breakage process of oversized blocks with explosives for the limestone quarries. To solve this problem, we propose the centroid weight method for weighting the selection criteria, and the PROMETHEE model as a multicriteria decision making method. A case study is carried out in the limestone quarry of the cement factory of Hadjar-Soud, Algeria.
