Abstract

Fuzzy Multiple Criteria Decision Making plays an important role in solving problems in decision making under fuzzy environment. Among the popular methods used is the fuzzy TOPSIS (Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution) where the solution is based on the shortest distance from its positive ideal solution and the farthest distance from its negative ideal solution. The fuzzy TOPSIS method was first introduced by Chen (2000). At present, there are several variants of fuzzy TOPSIS methods and each of them claimed to have its own advantages. In this paper, a comparative analysis is made between the classical fuzzy TOPSIS method proposed by Chen in 2000 and the simplified fuzzy TOPSIS proposed by Sodhi in 2012. The purpose of this study is to show the similarities and the differences between these two methods and also elaborate on their strengths and limitations as well. A comparison is also made by providing numerical examples of both methods.
