Linear programming (LP) is a widely used optimization method for solving real-life problems because of its efficiency. Although precise data are fundamentally indispensable in conventional LP problems, the observed values of the data in real-life problems are often imprecise. Fuzzy sets theory has been extensively used to represent imprecise data in LP by formalizing the inaccuracies inherent in human decision-making. The fuzzy LP (FLP) models in the literature generally either incorporate the… CONTINUE READING
