Abstract: In this paper, we consider the major recognized downside in the Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) strategy, the rank reversal issue and propose a modification in the progress of ideal solutions calculation in the original algorithm of Hwang and Yoon in order to resolve the issue. The Rank reversal problems happen when rank orders of existing choices are anomalously reordered because of the addition or removal of an alternative in the choice space. Here the class of decision criterion has additionally been organized which may have a place to either cost or benefit group. A simplest representation of the modification has been done through some numerical illustrations to resolve the rank reversal issue. After a careful examination, the modified algorithm has been effectively applied in choosing an appropriate tourist location along with the result validation.
