The data was gathered from PhD. And Ms. Students in industrial engineering of Kharrazmi university of Tehran and PhD. And Ms. Students of the management department of Semnan university. A new hybrid approach was used for achieving the results of this study. This new hybrid approach ranks data criteria respect to each other, then by using TODIM for ranking respect to the best situation (gains), the rates of criterion were determined which is a very important advantage.
