This paper presents a comparative study of the methods used to determine the technological value or overall quality of cotton fibre. Three existing methods, namely the fibre quality index (FQI), the spinning consistency index (SCI) and the premium-discount index (PDI) have been considered, and a new method has been proposed based on a multiple-criteria decision-making (MCDM) technique. The efficacy of these methods was determined by conducting a rank correlation analysis between the…

Purpose Cotton fibre lots are graded and selected for yarn spinning based on their quality value which is a function of certain fibre properties. Cotton grading and selection has created a domain of

An Integrated DEMATEL–VIKOR Method-Based Approach for Cotton Fibre Selection and Evaluation

TLDR
Two popular MCDM methods in the form of decision making trial and evaluation laboratory (DEMATEL and VIKOR) are integrated to aid the cotton fibre selection decision and the derived ranking of cotton fibre alternatives closely matches with that obtained by the past researchers.

A Grey Fuzzy Logic Approach for Cotton Fibre Selection

TLDR
The preference order of the top-ranked cotton fibres derived using the grey fuzzy logic approach closely matches with that attained by the past researchers which proves the application potentiality of this method in solving varying MCDM problems in textile industries.

Application of Modified Similarity-Based Method for Cotton Fiber Selection

TLDR
This chapter examines the applicability and feasibility of a modified similarity-based approach for selection of cotton fiber which in turn assists in achieving sustainable design characteristics.

Cotton fibre selection and grading – a PROMETHEE-GAIA-based approach

Purpose In spinning industries, selection of the most appropriate fibre for yarn manufacturing plays an important role for achieving an optimal mix of several yarn characteristics, like

Application of fuzzy axiomatic design principles for cotton fibre selection

TLDR
The application of fuzzy axiomatic design (FAD) principles is presented in order to identify the most suitable cotton fibre for ring spun yarn from a set of competing alternatives while fulfilling the requirements of the spinning industries.

Technique Based on Fuzzy Logic for Cotton Bale Lay-down Management

TLDR
The fuzzy c-means clustering algorithm has been applied for clustering cotton bales into 5 categories from 1200 randomly chosen bales of the J-34 variety and is able to handle the haziness that may be present in the boundaries between adjacent classes of Cotton bales as compared to the K-mean clustering method.

A clarification of “remarks on the analytic hierarchy process”

The replies by Saaty (1990) and by Harker and Vargas (1990) to my remarks on the Analytic Hierarchy Process (Dyer 1990) are useful in focusing attention on areas of disagreement regarding the AHP,

Remarks on the analytic hierarchy process

The analytic hierarchy process AHP is flawed as a procedure for ranking alternatives in that the rankings produced by this procedure are arbitrary. This paper provides a brief review of several areas

A simplified optimization in cotton bale selection and laydown

We present a new approach to bale laydown grouping, which improves the laydown to laydown uniformities, compared to conventional approaches. In this approach, we use a frequency-relative picking

How to Make a Decision: The Analytic Hierarchy Process

TLDR
The analytic hierarchy process (AHP) includes both the rating and comparison methods and requires developing a reliable hierarchic structure or feedback network that includes criteria of various types of influence, stakeholders, and decision alternatives to determine the best choice.
