Abstract
This study presents a multi-criteria group decision making (MCGDM) approach named interval type-2 fuzzy VIKOR method, which aims to help new enterprises determine facility locations in a more reliable way. Initially, decision makers (DMs) describe the alternative locations within the context of linguistic variables. Moreover, this paper models the values of these variables with interval type-2 fuzzy sets (IT2FSs). Finally, a compromise solution which is the 'closet' one to the ideal solution can be obtained through computing by VIKOR method under IT2FSs environment. A numerical example is given to demonstrate the validity of the presented method.
