DECISION MAKING UNDER LINGUISTIC UNCERTAINTY CONDITIONS ON BASE OF GENERALIZED FUZZY NUMBERS

Keywords: linguistic uncertanty, decision making, membership function, aggregation, multi attribute decision making, generalized fuzzy numbers

Abstract

This article is devoted to the problem of decision making under linguistic uncertainty. The effective method for modelling linguistic uncertainty is the fuzzy set theory. There are several types of fuzzy number types proposed by L. Zadeh: fuzzy type-1, fuzzy type-2, Z-numbers. Chen proposed concept of generalized fuzzy numbers. Generalized trapezoidal fuzzy numbers (GTFN) one of effective approach which can be used for modeling linguistic uncertainty. GFTN very convenient model which allow take in account second order uncertainty. GFTN are formalized and major operations are described as practical problem is considered group decision making for supplier selection. In this case the criteria assessments are expressed by experts in linguistic form. Group decision making model is presented as 2 step aggregation procedure, in first step is aggregated value of alternative by expert, in second step by criteria. Numerical example with four criteria and three alternatives are presented and solved.
