Since it plays a significant role in the best choice of industry and science, it is always chosen to find the job that can be more accurate. One of these methods is the TOPSIS method.
In this article, after introducing the DEA and TOPSIS methods, we will introduce the TOPSIS-DEA method and then we will expand this method for interval criteria. In this method, there is no need to know the exact weight of the qualities, and this method deals with the best option without changing the qualitative qualities.
