Abstract

The facility location selection, which is one of the important activities in strategic planning for a wide range of private and public companies, is a multi-criteria decision making problem including both quantitative and qualitative criteria. Traditional methods for facility location selection can not be effectively handled because information can not be represented by precise information under many conditions. This paper proposes the integration of intuitionistic fuzzy preference relation aiming to obtain weights of criteria and intuitionistic fuzzy TOPSIS (Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution) method aiming to rank alternatives for dealing with imprecise information on selecting the most desirable facility location. To illustrate the application of the proposed method, a practical application is given.
