Continuous intuitionistic fuzzy ordered weighted distance measure and its application to group decision making
The aim of this paper is to develop the continuous intuitionistic fuzzy ordered weighted distance (C-IFOWD) measure by using the continuous intuitionistic fuzzy ordered weighted averaging (C-IFOWA) operator in the interval distance. We investigate some desirable properties and different families of the C-IFOWD measure. We also generalize the C-IFOWD measure. The prominent characteristics of the C-IFOWD measure are that it is not only a generalization of some widely used distance measure, but also it can deal with interval deviations in aggregation on interval-valued intuitionistic fuzzy values (IVIFVs) by using a controlled parameter, which can decrease the uncertainty of argument and improve the accuracy of decision. The desirable characteristics make the C-IFOWD measure suitable to wide range situations, such as decision making, engineering and investment, etc. In the end, we introduce a new approach to group decision making with IVIFVs in human resource management.
