In this paper a ranking Procedure based on Hexagonal Fuzzy numbers, is applied to a Multi-objective Linear programming problem (MOLPP) with fuzzy coefficients. By this ranking method any Multiobjective Fuzzy Linear Programming problem (MOFLPP) can be converted in to a crisp value problem to get an optimal solution. This method provides an insight for the planner due to uncertain environment in an organizational Economics. In an organization, where a number of alternatives and variables such as production, inventory, financial management, costing and various other parameters are involved, this ranking procedure serves as an efficient method wherein a numerical example is also taken and the inference is given.
