Abstract: This paper introduces the concept of fuzzy dominance matrix (FDM) for solving multiple attribute decision making (MADM) problems. During decision making process, dominance of one expert over others plays an important role to find out the optimal alternative(s). In uncertain decision making problems, often dominances are expressed using linguistic variables which can be represented by fuzzy dominance degree. We have proposed an algorithmic approach to solve multiple attribute decision making problems using FDM. Finally the proposed algorithm is illustrated using a numerical example.
Keywords: Fuzzy set, fuzzy dominance matrix, fuzzy decision matrix, multiple attribute decision making.
