Abstract

The method of Fuzzy Inferior Ratio (FIR) has been recognized as one of advantageous methods in multi criteria decision-making under fuzzy environment as it considers the element of compromise solution between the positive and negative aspect of the evaluation simultaneously. It is considered as an improvised version of Fuzzy TOPSIS (Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution) method for solving decision-making problems. However, the FIR utilizes the distance approach in the evaluation of obtaining the compromise solution. A defuzzification process is carried out to transform the fuzzy values into a crisp form. Hence, loss of information may occur in the computation. In this paper, we proposed a similarity-based FIR that overcomes the above-mentioned problem. A new compromise solution for the proposed FIR is developed and an improvised procedure of FIR is suggested using the similarity measure approach. A comparative analysis between the distance based and the similarity-based FIR is carried out using a case study of preferred client selection for a loan application. The proposed method is found to be effective in solving decision-making problems as the utilization of similarity measure will sufficiently preserve the data information in the computational process of evaluation.
