Fuzzy Linear Physical Programming for Multiple Criteria Decision-Making Under Uncertainty
Keywords:Decision Support Systems, Fuzzy Goal Programming, Fuzzy Sets and Systems, Heuristics, Linear Physical Programming, Logistics, Multi-criteria Decision Making, Supply Chain
This paper presents a newly developed fuzzy linear physical programming (FLPP) model that allows the decision maker to introduce his/her preferences for multiple criteria decision making in a fuzzy environment. The major contribution of this research is to generalize the current models by accommodating an environment that is conducive to fuzzy problem solving. An example is used to evaluate, compare and discuss the results of the proposed model.
