Global competition has given rise to Logistic and Production Systems (LPSs), that are distributed manufacturing systems integrating international logistics and information technologies with production. This paper builds upon an LPS network design model previously proposed by some of the authors. The recalled technique formulates and solves a multicriteria optimization problem to select the partners in the different stages of the production chain and the links connecting them. In this paper, in

Two fuzzification techniques and two different multicriteria methods are considered. In addition, the methodology is illustrated by way of a case study. Moreover, a discussion on the different advantages and limitations of the proposed techniques is provided.
