A new approach for ranking of trapezoidal fuzzy numbers. (English) Zbl 1165.03337

Summary: Ranking fuzzy numbers plays an very important role in linguistic decision making and some other fuzzy application systems. Several strategies have been proposed for ranking of fuzzy numbers. Each of these techniques have been shown to produce non-intuitive results in certain cases. In this paper, we will introduce a new approach for ranking of trapezoidal fuzzy numbers based on the left and the right spreads at some \(\alpha \)-levels of trapezoidal fuzzy numbers. The calculation of the proposed method is far simpler and easier. Finally, some comparative examples are used to illustrate the advantage of the proposed method.
