Information, Vol. 9, Pages 55: A Novel Approach for Group Decision-Making from Intuitionistic Fuzzy Preference Relations and Intuitionistic Multiplicative Preference Relations Information doi: 10.3390/info9030055 Authors: Rui Wang Yan-Lai Li During the decision-making process, evaluation information may be given in different formats based on the decision makers’ research fields or personal customs. To address the situation that alternatives are evaluated by both intuitionistic fuzzy preference relations (IFPRs) and intuitionistic multiplicative preference relations (IMPRs), a new priority approach based on a net flow score function is proposed. First, the two preference relations above are transformed into the corresponding interval-valued fuzzy preference relations (IVFPRs) and interval-valued multiplicative preference relations (IVMPRs), respectively. Second, the net flow score functions of individual IFPRs and IMPRs are obtained. Third, according to information theory, a mean deviation maximization model is constructed to compute the weights of decision-makers objectively. Finally, the collective net flow score of each alternative is obtained to determine the ranking result. The proposed method is certified to be simple, valid, and practical with three examples.
