Abstract
Multi Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) uses different techniques to find a best alternative from multi-alternative and multi-criteria conditions. TOPSIS is an important practical technique for ranking and selection of different alternatives by using distance measures. Classical TOPSIS uses crisp techniques for the linguistic assessments, but due to imprecise and fuzziness nature of the linguistic assessments, we faced some problems to find out the solution of these problems. We proposed a Fuzzy TOPSIS with its example in this work and use this method for decision making.
