Abstract. The aim of this study was to identify indicators of lean manufacturing techniques by using fuzzy TOPSIS in Iran Khodro Co. The population of the study is 296 managers and experts of Iran Khodro and number of samples by using Cochran formula is 167. The deployment of lean manufacturing with the peer review literature in the form of a conceptual model in the 5 dimensions of leadership, management information systems, human resources, supply chain management and manufacturing process management, identification and screening of indicators 15 were in the index locating in each dimension. Then, using the technique of fuzzy TOPSIS to evaluation and ranking of indicators and techniques of lean manufacturing with Shannon entropy TOPSIS looked fuzzy. The importance of leadership in the rankings after the first and dimension information system management, manufacturing process management, human resources and supply chain management business ranks second to fifth respectively. Using fuzzy TOPSIS techniques and were rated 15 of the index's weight.
