Paper Abstract

In this paper, we employ fuzzy AHP methodology for selecting potential recovery facilities in a closed-loop supply chain. This methodology utilizes triangular fuzzy numbers for pair-wise comparisons and the extent analysis method for the synthetic extent value of the fuzzy pair-wise comparisons and principle of comparison of fuzzy numbers to derive the weight vectors to address the criticism traditional AHP often faces due to its unbalanced scale of judgments and inability to handle inherent uncertainty in carrying out pair-wise comparisons. A numerical example is considered to illustrate the methodology.
