This paper presents a study on the multi-creteria decision making in the external cylindrical grinding process of 65G steel. An aluminum oxide grinding wheel was used in the experimental process. The experimental matrix was designed according to the Taguchi method with twenty-seven experiments. Five parameters were used to design the experimental matrix including workpiece velocity, feed rate, depth of cut, dressing feed rate, and dressing depth of cut. The surface roughness and Material Removal Rate (MRR) were determined for each experiment. This is the first time that the Weighted Aggregates Sum Product ASsessment (WASPAS) and Proximity Indexed Value (PIV) methods were used to make the multi-criteria decision for grinding process. The weighs of ouput criteria (surface roughness and MRR) were determined by Entropy method. Both WASPAS and PIV methods determined an experiment that simultaneously ensured the “minimum value” of surface roughness and “maximum value” of MRR.
