In the present work we propose an economic decision making protocol by use of fuzzy logic. The problem here is the decision making problem of a multinational company which wants to establish a production unit to minimize its cost of production while the information available are fuzzy quantities. The main tool of fuzzy logic used here is the rank determination of fuzzy numbers. We apply the properties of fuzziness with any recourse to a defuzzification procedure.
