Group decision making process for RFID-based system selection using fuzzy TOPSIS approach

Yahia Zare Mehrjerdi

Abstract


The purpose of this article is twofold: first to introduce a multi attribute decision making model for radio frequency identification system consisting of four main criteria and five alternatives, and second to develop and solve the proposed fuzzy TOPSIS problem. Author presented an effective fuzzy multi-criteria method based upon the fuzzy model and the concepts of positive ideal and negative ideal solution points for solving problems with a group of multi decision makers. The fuzzy sets concepts are used to evaluate the performance of alternatives and the importance of criteria. The TOPSIS model used in this article is able to grasp the ambiguity exists in the utilized information and the fuzziness appears in the human judgments and preferences. TOPSIS technique can easily produce satisfactory results, and hence stimulates creativity and the invention for developing new methods and alternative approaches. This article is a very useful source of information both for radio frequency identification and multi attribute decision making using fuzzy TOPSIS methodology
