## What is Topsis PDF?

TOPSIS (Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution) is one of the numerical. methods of the multi-criteria decision making. This is a broadly applicable method with a simple mathematical. model.

## What is the Topsis method?

It is a method of compensatory aggregation that compares a set of alternatives by identifying weights for each criterion, normalising scores for each criterion and calculating the geometric distance between each alternative and the ideal alternative, which is the best score in each criterion.

**What is ideal solution in Topsis?**

The Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) is the part of the analytical multi-criteria decision-making technique. The main idea of this technique, the preferred alternative is the one with the most close to the positive ideal solution and the further to the negative ideal solution.

### What is the full form of TOPSIS?

TOPSIS (technique for order performance by similarity to ideal solution) is a useful technique in dealing with multi-attribute or multi-criteria decision making (MADM/MCDM) problems in the real world [1].

### Which is better AHP or TOPSIS?

It is a ranking method. It gives both quantitative and qualitative study of the problem. Topsis Method gives best and quick decision to our real life problems than AHP (Analytical Hierarchy Process) and FAHP (Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process) Methods.

**Who developed TOPSIS method?**

The TOPSIS method was first developed in 1981 by Yoon and Hwang [3]. Its basic concept is that the chosen alternative should have the shortest distance from the ideal solution and the farthest from the negative-ideal solution (Figure 1) [3,4].

#### What is TOPSIS decision making technique?

TOPSIS (Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution) is a decision making technique that fits between the qualitative Pugh Matrix and quantitative SDI Matrix approaches. TOPSIS is a Goal-based approach for finding the alternative that is closest to the ideal solution .

**What is a positive and negative value in TOPSIS?**

TOPSIS assumes that each Design Option wants to either be maximized or minimized, so the positive-ideal solution for a Criterion that wants to be maximized is the maximum value of all the design options considered and the negative-ideal solution is the minimum values of all the design options considered.
