Abstract

Multicriteria decision-making (MCDM) refers to making decisions in the presence of multiple and usually conflicting criteria. Fuzzy decision-making is used where vague and incomplete data exist for the solution. Fuzzy multicriteria decision-making is one of the most popular problems handled by the researchers in the literature. In this paper, we survey the latest status of fuzzy multicriteria decision-making methods and classify these methods dividing into two parts: fuzzy multiattribute decision-making (MADM) and fuzzy multiobjective decision-making (MODM). Most of the publications are on fuzzy MADM since there are a plenty of classical multiattribute decision-making methods in the literature. Tabular and graphical illustrations for each method are given.
