On Rough Interval Multi Criteria Decision Making

[Full Text]



Hegazy Zaher , H. A. Khalifa , Soha Mohamed



Rough Interval, Multiple Criteria Decision Making Methods, subjective weights, objective weights.



Nowadays Multi Criteria becomes a basic tool in Decision Making. Several methods are developed in both certainty and uncertainty domains to facilitate the decision making process. This study presents three different Multi Criteria Decision Making Methods based on rough interval with subjective and objective weights to raise the accuracy of the rating values. The proposed methods are tested against some known methods in the literature. The obtained results show the competence of the proposed techniques.
