In the most multiple attribute decision making methods the attribute values are provided to transform into one dimension. The normalization of attribute values is not always needed, but it may be essential. This restructuring is carried out in accordance with appropriate normalization rules. It has been observed that some of multiple attribute methods are used for different normalization rules. In practical calculations it noted that using different normalization rules in the same multiple
