While product creativity has been extensively investigated, the mould product creativity for vocational college students is unexplored. First, this study collects the status of mould technology in various countries, the scope of technical knowledge of moulds and the relevant literature on creativity performance. In addition, this study involves a quantitative and qualitative content analysis of relevant documents, textbooks and educational objectives of mould performance creativity, which includes originality, practicability, precision, aesthetics and exchangeability in five hierarchies and 16 indexes. Second, this study assesses these criteria by employing the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) technique to solicit opinions from 15 experts by using questionnaires. Results show that precision, exchangeability, practicability, originality and aesthetics have weights of 34.1%, 28.2%, 23.8%, 8.9%, 4.9%, respectively.
