Abstract

Fuzzy TOPSIS is one of the various models of multiple attributes Decision Making with Fuzzy values. In this paper a new method is presented for fuzzy TOPSIS with Triangular fuzzy number. In today's world a consumer while purchasing a product looks after various criteria of a particular product and the place where it is sold. So different products are taken into account along with associated sales counters is identified and formulated. In this paper AHP and Fuzzy TOPSIS methods are proposed to determine the best alternatives using the subjective criteria. The fuzzy distance between each alternative and the ideal solution is found out with the greatest relative closeness to the ideal solution is obtained.
