Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) has found a lot of use in everyday life. TOPSIS (Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution) is one of the MCDM technique which aims to find the optimal solution by finding a solution which is nearest to the ideal solution and is farthest from the negative ideal solution.
