Priority structure in fuzzy goal programming. (English) Zbl 0602.90078

This paper introduces priority structure in Fuzzy Goal Programming (FGP). This approach utilizes the lexicographic order of Goal Programming (GP) and yields an efficient computational algorithm for solving FGP. Fuzzy priorities are also discussed. A numerical example is given to highlight the procedure. Concluding remarks are also made.
