This article presents an algorithm for solving fully fuzzy multi-objective linear fractional (FFMOLF) optimization problem. Some computational algorithms have been developed for the solution of fully fuzzy single-objective linear fractional optimization problems. Veeramani and Sumathi (Appl Math Model 40:6148–6164, 2016) pointed out that no algorithm is available for solving a single-objective fully fuzzy optimization problem. Das et al. (RAIRO-Oper Res 51:285–297, 2017) proposed a method for solving single-objective linear fractional programming problem using multi-objective programming. Moreover, it is the fact that no method/algorithm is available for solving a FFMOLF optimization problem. In this article, a fully fuzzy MOLF optimization problem is considered, where all the coefficients and variables are assumed to be the triangular fuzzy numbers (TFNs). So, we are proposing an algorithm for solving FFMOLF optimization problem with the help of the ranking function and the weighted approach. To validate the proposed fuzzy intelligent algorithm, three existing classical numerical problems are converted into FFMOLF optimization problem using approximate TFNs. Then, the proposed algorithm is applied in an asymmetric way. Since there is no algorithm available in the existing literature for solving this difficult problem, we compare the obtained efficient solutions with corresponding existing methods for deterministic problems.
