The key objective of the present proposed work in this paper is introduced a new version of picture fuzzy set so called spherical fuzzy sets (SFS). spherical fuzzy set is a new extension of picture fuzzy sets and Pythagorean fuzzy sets. In spherical fuzzy sets, membership degrees are gratifying the condition 0 <= P-2(x) + I-2(x) + N-2(x) <= 1 instead of 0 <= P(x) + I(x) + N(x) <= 1 as is in picture fuzzy sets. In this paper, we investigate the basic operations of spherical fuzzy sets and discuss some related results. We extend operational laws to aggregation operators and introduce weighted averaging and weighted geometric aggregation operators based on spherical fuzzy number's. Further a multi attribute decision making method is developed and these aggregation operators are utilized. Finally, we constructed a numerical approach for implementation of proposed technique.
