An approach to the production plant location selection based on the use of the Atanassov interval-valued intuitionistic fuzzy sets
Location planning is one of very important tasks in the manufacturing industry. There are various factors that influence the selection of a location of a production plant. In cases of selection, when uncertainty and a need for predicting are significantly manifested, the use of fuzzy or grey numbers can be very useful. That is why an approach based on the use of Interval-Valued Intuitionistic Fuzzy Numbers (IVIFNs) for the selection of the most appropriate location of a production plant is considered in this article. The efficiency of the proposed approach is considered on an example, based on the real problem of the smelter and refinery production plant selection.
