A Fuzzy Group Decision Support System for Projects Evaluation
In any organization there are some main goals and lots of projects for achieving these goals. For any organization, it is important to determine how much these projects affect on achieving the main goals. This paper proposes a new fuzzy multiple attribute-based decision support system (DSS) for evaluating projects in promoting the goals as such a selection may involve both quantitative and qualitative assessment attributes. There are many fuzzy ranking methods available to solve multi-attribute decision making (MADM) problems. Some are more suitable than other for particular decision problems. The proposed DSS has ability to choose the most appropriate fuzzy ranking method for solving given MADM problem. In addition it contains sensitivity analysis system which provides opportunity for analyzing the impacts of attributes’ weights and projects’ performance on achieving organizations’ goals. A DSS software prototype has been developed on the basis of the proposed DSS which can be applied for solving every FMADM problem which needs to rank some alternatives according to some attributes.
