Applying the TOPSIS Approach for Selecting the Best Small Project


Abstract: Projects selection is a significant problem. However, regularly challenging task. It is difficult because there is typically more than one measurement of the effects on all projects, particularly when there are multiple decision-makers. In this paper, the authors consider a tangible presentation of projects choosing for a different number of projects through an experts opinions by a group decision-making method called TZOPSEIS (Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to an Ideal Solution). This method is characterized by its ability to measure the relative performance for each alternative in a simple mathematical form. Four criteria have been deliberated to select the finest one among five projects and rank them. The proposed manner is used in a case study in the Iraqi environment which is analyzed from diverse directions of vision to evaluate and select the best small project.
