Abstract :

 

Multiple criteria decision making is one of the many areas where neutrosophic sets have been successfully applied to solve various problems so far. Compared to a fuzzy set, and similar sets, neutrosophic sets use more membership functions which makes them suitable for using complex evaluation criteria in multiple criteria decision making. On the other hand, the application of three membership functions makes evaluation somewhat more complex compared to evaluation using fuzzy sets. The reliability of the data used to solve a problem can have an impact on the selection of the appropriate solution/alternative. Therefore, this paper discusses an approach that can be used to assess the reliability of information collected by surveying respondents. The usability of the proposed approach is demonstrated in the numerical illustration of the supplier selection.
