    Evaluating and selecting the right contractors can increase the chances of success of a project and the organization. Considering the intense competition faced by organizations today, proper cost management to enhance profitability and customer satisfaction has attracted a lot of attention. The evaluation of contractors is usually a process thatis based on various criteria.By the end of it, theappropriate options are selected. Given the diversity in the criteria and among thedecision-making subjects, no singleway has been offered to suggest substitution between criteria.The desirability indifference on the curve ofconsumption of various goods (selection ofdecision-making options) are the same. This paper seeks to identify parallel matrices with the initial decision-making matrix of contractors that have the same results and desirability for decision-makers (indifference points). At first, the initial rating using the AHP and TOPSIS methods andthe particle swarm optimization (PSO) and genetic algorithm (GA)techniques, along withMATLAB software,was used to identify theparallel matrices. According to the obtained results, sixparallel matrixes with the initial decision-making matrix that had been prepared by experts fromthe company were produced.Out of them, the matrix related to The point of indifference is the fifth output5 AHP-PSO, based on the company experts' opinions was selected as the final version.

    Uncertainty in the capital market means the difference between the expected values ​​and the amounts that actually occur. Designing different analytical and forecasting methods in the capital market is also less likely due to the high amount of this and the need to know future prices with greater certainty or uncertainty. In order to capitalize on the capital market, investors have always sought to find the right share for investment and the right price to buy and sell, and so all the predicted models always seek to answer the three basic questions, i.e., which share, to what extent When and at what price to buy or sell. Before answering the answers given to these questions, you have to answer a more serious question. Including whether forecasting financial markets is possible. Accordingly, in this research, using data mining, we proposed a method for predicting changes in the total stock index of Tehran stock exchanges. The purpose of this research is in the field of applied research. In terms of its implementation, the research is based on a causal research that is carried out using a data collection database. Based on the results obtained from this study on the best decision tree algorithm with respect to the accuracy of 94% of the C & R Tree algorithm, it can be said that this algorithm can be better than predicting stock price changes. Also, using decision tree can also predict changes in the price of the payment.
