Abstract—This paper deals with the selection of optimum manufacturing firm for the manufacturing of Aluminium profile, with the help of MADM (multi-attribute decision making) technique. Various choices of industries are generally available that are producing the same type of the product. Selection of industry is done based on various alternatives and attributes such as product cost, cycle time, weight of profile, percentage conversion of metal, number of trial run, number of work station, etc. For the research, data from four Aluminium profile manufacturing industries are selected. The product of these industries are same, i.e., Aluminium profile. Considering sixteen different attributes which affects the performance of the industry. Selection is done by using Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) method.
Index Terms—Aluminium profile, Multi-Attribute Decision Making (MADM), Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS)
