Abstract

With respect to the characteristics of fuzziness, complexity and uncertainty for many group-decision making problems in real world, the paper proposes a novel method based on the interval grey linguistic variables hybrid weighted harmonic aggregation operators to solve the multiple attribute group decision making problems in which the attribute values and the weights take the form of the interval grey linguistic variables. In the approach, the relative concepts and the operation rules of interval grey linguistic variables are defined, and some operators (such as interval grey linguistic weighted harmonic aggregation (IGLWHA) operator, interval grey linguistic ordered weighted harmonic aggregation (IGLOWHA) operator, and interval grey linguistic hybrid weighted harmonic aggregation (IGLHWHA) operator) are proposed to solve the group decision making problems. The computational results from an illustrative example have shown that the proposed approach is feasible and effective for the group-decision making problems.
