Utilizing a new approach for solving fully fuzzy linear programming problems
This paper deals with fully fuzzy linear programming (FFLP) problem in which all parameters and variables are characterized by L-R fuzzy numbers. By a proposed approach, the FFLP problem is converted into the triple objective functions, and hence a single objective using the weighting method. Through this approach the problem is not transformed into the crisp linear programming problem (LPP) that is enable for obtaining fuzzy optimal solution and the corresponding fuzzy optimal solution which is more realistic to the real world problems. Then a numerical example is taken to the utility and clarify the practically and the efficiency of the approach.
