Abstract

Purpose
The purpose of this paper is to find most appropriate production strategy for a manufacturing plant by using an integrated interval-valued intuitionistic fuzzy (IVIF) analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and technique for order preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS) approach.

Design/methodology/approach
The applied methodology is a multi-criteria decision making approach consists of AHP and TOPSIS methods with the extension of intuitionistic fuzzy sets.

Findings
Results of the application are revealed that using integrated IVIF-AHP & TOPSIS methods are very appropriate for the prioritization of the strategy for the production management for a manufacturing plant. This outcome also is supported by the sensitivity analysis. Results of the sensitivity analysis demonstrate the robustness of the methodology.

Originality/value
To the best of the authors’ knowledge, an integrated IVIF-AHP & TOPSIS methodology is used for the prioritization of production strategies for the first time.

Purpose The purpose of this paper is to find most appropriate production strategy for a manufacturing plant by using an integrated interval-valued intuitionistic fuzzy (IVIF) analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and technique for order preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS) approach.
