The selection of a facility location from alternative locations is a multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) problem including both quantitative and qualitative criteria. Inmany reallife cases, determining the exact values for MCDM problems, and especially for facility location selection problems, is difficult or impossible, so the values of alternatives with respect to the criteria or/and the values of criteria weights are considered as fuzzy values (fuzzy numbers) such that the conventional… CONTINUE READING
