A New Model for Transportation Problem with Qualitative Data
Zangiabadi , Rabie
Abstract:   (14410 Views)
 In today’s highly competitive market, the pressure on organizations to find a better way to create and deliver value to customers is mounting. The decision involves many quantitative and qualitative factors that may be conflicting in nature. Here, we present a new model for transportation problem with consideration of quantitative and qualitative data. In the model, we quantify the qualitative data by using the weight assessment technique in the fuzzy analytic hierarchy process. Then, a preemptive fuzzy goal programming model is formulated to solve the proposed model. The software package LINGO is used for solving the fuzzy goal programming model. Finally, a numerical example is given to illustrate that the proposed model may lead to a more appropriate solution. 
Keywords: Multi-objective transportation problem, Qualitative data, Fuzzy goal programming, Fuzzy analytic hierarchy process
