Abstract

Aimed at the situation that the plan attribute value is a three-parameter interval grey number and that attribute weight is uncertain, a three-parameter interval grey number multi-attribute decision making method based on information entropy is proposed. In this study, we combine the three-parameter interval grey number decision-making problem with information entropy, build the distance entropy model of the three-parameter interval grey number, and provide a solution to the empowerment problem of the three-parameter interval grey number in grey decision-making problems. On this basis, we build the uncertainty decision making framework based on Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) thinking and obtain the comprehensive distances of plans from positive and negative ideal solutions through calculation. We thus determine the closeness, and, based on this value, organize these plans. Finally, we verify the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed methods through case analysis. View Full-Text
