—This paper focuses on presenting a multi-criteria decision aid to rank and select the best improvement solution with integration using technique for order preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS) and data of computer simulation. The proposed decision aid in this paper provides industrial practitioners with a structured and formalized evaluation process when considering multiple criteria. A case study company was used to illustrate the operation of the decision support process through the selection process of improvement solutions. Based on the analysis, the selected improvement solution has been increased 29.3% of the line efficiency. The multi – criteria decision aid has been shown to assist the industrial practitioners when deciding to select and adopt the best improvement solutions.
