Multi Criteria Decision Making by Using Intuitionistic Fuzzy Preference Relations

Deepa Joshi, Sanjay Kumar


In this paper, we present intuitionistic fuzzy preference relations for multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) problem. In proposed method linear programming model is used to obtain optimal weights of criteria, by utilizing criteria weights and accuracy function we select the best one in accordance with the value of weighting function. In order to examine the impact of criteria weights on final ranking sensitivity analysis is performed. A numerical example is also given to clarify the developed approach and to demonstrate its effectiveness.
