Abstract

This paper advances the multi-attribute value theory to take into account the uncertainty of the decision-maker’s preferences with respect to the value of assessments and importance of attributes. It considers the basic steps of the original method of multi-attribute value theory against the modified one. The modified method can use the decision-maker’s responses as fuzzy triangular numbers to construct single-attribute value functions and to find the scaling coefficients. The paper presents an approach to finding fuzzy scaling coefficients by comparing paired matches and generating a system of linear equations with fuzzy coefficients. It is proposed to solve the system of equations by representing it as a set of systems of interval equations derived by splitting fuzzy sets by α levels. Multi-attribute fuzzy assessment of alternatives is carried out by solving linear programming problems based on systems of equations pertaining to individual α levels. The paper provides an example of using the modified method for multi-attribute comparison of alternatives.
