A NEW RANKING APPROACH AND ITS APPLICATION TO SOLVING FUZZY CRITICAL PATH PROBLEMS

P Kaur, A Kumar

Abstract


There are several methods for solving fuzzy critical path problems in which ranking approaches are used to compare fuzzy numbers. In this paper, some fuzzy critical path problems are chosen to show that the results obtained with fuzzy critical path methods that use existing ranking approaches are not appropriate according to real life situations. To obtain appropriate results, a new ranking approach the Mehar ranking approach, is proposed for comparing LR flat fuzzy numbers. To show the advantages of the Mehar ranking approach over existing approaches, selected fuzzy critical path problems are solved by using the existing methods together with the Mehar ranking approach. It is shown that the obtained results are appropriate.
