Abstract

In this paper, we investigate multiple-attribute decision-making (MADM) with Pythagorean 2-tuple linguistic numbers (P2TLNs). Then, we combine the weighted Bonferroni mean (WBM) operator and weighted geometric Bonferroni mean (WGBM) operator with P2TLNs to propose the Pythagorean 2-tuple linguistic WBM (P2TLWBM) operator and Pythagorean 2-tuple linguistic WGBM (P2TLWGBM) operator; MADM methods are then developed based on these two operators. Finally, a practical example for green supplier selection is given to verify the developed approach and to demonstrate its practicality and effectiveness. View Full-Text
