Abstract Recently, the competitiveness and awareness of productivity have increased rapidly among different industries. Hence, the performance evaluation of the criteria affecting the productivity is needed to improve productivity and strengthen the management of the organization. In Bangladesh, Ready Made Garments (RMGs) is one of the most probable and profitable sectors which is considered as the main economic strength of the country. In this study, a two-phased research method has been projected to find out some governing factors affecting industry's output. In the first phase, six criteria associated with the productivity have been identified based on literature, inputs from experts, opinions from the officials and managers of six garments industries in Bangladesh. In the second phase, among different MCDM tools, Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (FAHP) has been used for evaluating criteria weights and ranking the criteria. Among several criteria, line-balancing criterion has been found as the most important factor to improve the RMG's productivity.
