A NEW METHOD FOR HANDLING MULTICRITERIA FUZZY DECISION-MAKING PROBLEMS USING FN-IOWA OPERATORS

A NEW METHOD FOR HANDLING MULTICRITERIA FUZZY DECISION-MAKING PROBLEMS USING FN-IOWA OPERATORS We use fuzzy numbers to extend the traditional induced ordered weight averaging (IOWA) operator to present the fuzzy-number IOWA (FN-IOWA) operator, wherein fuzzy numbers are used to describe the argument values and the weights of the FN-IOWA operator, and the aggregation results are obtained by using fuzzy-number arithmetic operations. We also present a new method for ranking fuzzy numbers. Based on the proposed FN-IOWA operator and the proposed ranking method of fuzzy numbers, we present a new algorithm to deal with multicriteria fuzzy decision-making problems. The proposed algorithm can deal with multicriteria fuzzy decision-making problems in a more intelligent and more flexible manner. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Cybernetics & Systems Taylor & Francis

Abstract

We use fuzzy numbers to extend the traditional induced ordered weight averaging (IOWA) operator to present the fuzzy-number IOWA (FN-IOWA) operator, wherein fuzzy numbers are used to describe the argument values and the weights of the FN-IOWA operator, and the aggregation results are obtained by using fuzzy-number arithmetic operations. We also present a new method for ranking fuzzy numbers. Based on the proposed FN-IOWA operator and the proposed ranking method of fuzzy numbers, we present a new algorithm to deal with multicriteria fuzzy decision-making problems. The proposed algorithm can deal with multicriteria fuzzy decision-making problems in a more intelligent and more flexible manner.
