Fuzzy goal programming - an additive model. (English) Zbl 0627.90073

An additive model to solve Fuzzy Goal Programming (FGP) is formulated. The method uses arithmetic addition to aggregate the fuzzy goals to construct the relevant decision function. Cardinal and ordinal weights for nonequivalent fuzzy goals are also incorporated in the method. The solution procedure is illustrated with a numerical example.
