According to some scholars, Islamic architecture is influenced by Islamic values. It has religious contents and represents religious beliefs and values. But as regards the most Islamic values are in the form of abstract concepts, they have different meanings for different people and everyone has its own definition and displays it in buildings. This lack of consensus on Islamic concepts points to the need to develop some indexes which can identify the framework of activities based on them. But what is the index and indexing? How can it be achived and how to achive the process of it. For this purpose, this study examined the documents, to identify indexing method which has been used mainly in survey research. Indices, are thoes indicatores that determine the process of collecting, classifying, analysing data, logical conclusion, and generally the activity’s orientation and provides appropriate framework for targeting, developing, planning and assessment of activities. It should be noted, that the index and index constructing is in order to simplify the complexities temporarily and quantify the qualitis and minify the generalities and its purpose is not only on quantities or replacing quality variables with numbers and quantities but looking for ways to make a quantitative assesment of the intermediaries by taking multiple steps. In results, the Index making process in architecture is discussed and the appropriate statistical techniques to prioritize indicators of index has been presented: the Delphi method and Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process.
