Blockchain service provider selection based on an integrated BWM-Entropy-TOPSIS method under an intuitionistic fuzzy environment

Sen Liu, Yanan Hu, Xiao Zhang, Yanfeng Li, Ling Liu
2020 IEEE Access  
This study enriches the theory and methodology of blockchain technology and MAGDM analysis.  ...  The proposed method is defined in an intuitionistic fuzzy environment and integrates entropy and the best-worst method (BWM) for comprehensive weighting of decision makers (DMs), subjective criteria and  ...  According to the concept of an intuitionistic fuzzy set and the linguistic terms for rating the alternatives, k DMs evaluate each alternative with reference to each criterion, forming the individual decision  ...

The Supplier evaluation problem: the state of the art

Nazanin Ghasemy, Afrouz Rahmandoust, Sedigheh Khoushehchin-Bahar
2018 Journal of Soft Computing and Applications  
The present paper provides a comprehensive literature review on some of articles published for supplier evaluation in recent years.  ...  Decision making and supplier selection is basically a multi-criteria issue. Nevertheless, some of these criteria might be in conflict with each other.  ...  In today's competitive world, most enterprises are to reduce their costs and meet customers' needs while increasing quality of their products.  ...
