Abstract

For the three last decades, the multi-objective fractional programming problem has attracted the attention of many researchers due to various applications in production planning, financial field, and inventory management, and so on. The main aim of this study is to introduce a new application of hesitant fuzzy sets in real-life modeling. We intend to model multi-objective linear fractional programming problems under a hesitant fuzzy environment and present a procedure to solve them. the increasing applications of multi-objective linear fractional programming problems and the lack of research papers in this field under a hesitant fuzzy environment are the main motivations of this study. In a hesitant fuzzy set, the membership degree of an element belongs to the set can be represented by several possible values in [0,1]. These values can be chosen by different experts that cannot reach a single opinion in determining a membership degree. so, in our model several evaluations for each of goals established by decision makers based on their attitudes. The generalization of the fuzzy decision-making principle and some new concepts provide an effective solution procedure for the problem. Finally, a practical example is extended to illustrate the applicability of the proposed method.
