ABSTRACT

In this article, a novel methodology is presented on the basis of cooperative games. A scientific evaluation and prioritization approach is proposed by solving the group decision making (GDM) problems with multiplicative triangular hesitant fuzzy preference relations (MTHFPRs). First of all, the concept of MTHFPRs is defined, and the corresponding consistency measurements are introduced. Then, we propose the aggregation method for MTHFPRs according to the cooperative games method. Furthermore, we construct a GDM model using MTHFPRs (GDM-MTHFPRs) in order to help a group of people to assess and prioritize alternatives. Finally, the validity and feasibility of proposed GDM-MTHFPRs method is verified by an illustration, along with some discussions.
