This paper presents an approach for multi criteria decision making problems based on the Dice similarity measure and weighted Dice similarity measure for picture fuzzy sets (PFSs). To illustrate the application of the proposed method, a practical problem has been considered and the results are compared and verified with an existing method. The results are well matched and the calculations are compact and much easier to analyze.
