A neutrosophic cubic set is the hybridization of the concept of a neutrosophic set and an interval neutrosophic set. A neutrosophic cubic set has the capacity to express the hybrid information of both the interval neutrosophic set and the single valued neutrosophic set simultaneously. As newly defined, little research on the operations and applications of neutrosophic cubic sets has been reported in the current literature. In the present paper, we propose the score and accuracy functions for neutrosophic cubic sets and prove their basic properties. We also develop a strategy for ranking of neutrosophic cubic numbers based on the score and accuracy functions. We firstly develop a TODIM (Tomada de decisao interativa e multicritévio) in the neutrosophic cubic set (NC) environment, which we call the NC-TODIM. We establish a new NC-TODIM strategy for solving multi attribute group decision making (MAGDM) in neutrosophic cubic set environment. We illustrate the proposed NC-TODIM strategy for solving a multi attribute group decision making problem to show the applicability and effectiveness of the developed strategy. We also conduct sensitivity analysis to show the impact of ranking order of the alternatives for different values of the attenuation factor of losses for multi-attribute group decision making strategies.
