Abstract: Nowadays, Lean manufacturing tools become a key strategy for global competition. In a lean manufacturing environment, the selection of process equipments is a complex multi criteria problem. To solve such types of problems we use the VIKOR method . By using the VIKOR method decision makers can take the decision which is closer to the ideal solutions. In this paper linguistic fuzzy data is used to find out the ranking. It explains the procedure of VIKOR model in selecting a machine with a numerical example.
Keywords: Equipment Selection, Fuzzy VIKOR, Lean Manufacturing,.
Scope of the Article: Fuzzy Logics
