Abstract

n this paper a ranking procedure based on Octagonal fuzzy numbers, is applied to a fuzzy valued transportation problem. Using this ranking method we convert any fuzzy transportation problem (cost, demand and supply appearing as octagonal fuzzy numbers) to a crisp valued transportation problem which then can be solved using the MODI method. The proposed method serves as an efficient method in ranking Octagonal fuzzy numbers which is illustrated through a numerical example.
