Lean tools selection is one of the critical factors for decision makers in competitive environment. This research aims at integrating two methods to evaluate the lean tools and techniques, and ranking aspect of efficacy under four criteria: lead time, cost, defects, and value. The proposed model is applied in lean tools selection problem. The methodology is based on SAW, and TOPSIS, techniques by Borda. We suggest a logical procedure to measure the efficacy of lean tools on leanne ss and prioritize them as decision maker. A case study is used to demonstrate the lean implementation in companies. The results show obtained scores level of tools was different aspect to four criteria. The integration of these approaches has created syner gy and shown to be even more powerful. So, the proposed integrated SAW - TOPSIS model can evaluate and rank different alternatives, whereas considering various criteria in the production processes. A hybrid model can take advantage of various methodologies. The hybrid model will be more helpful in assisting integrated decision making for the purpose of tools evaluation and selection.
