In this paper, shortcomings and limitations of the existing methods for solving fuzzy linear programming (FLP) problems are pointed out. To overcome the limitations as well as to resolve the shortcomings, a new method is proposed for solving FLP problems. To show the advantage of the proposed method over existing methods, a FLP problem is solved by the existing methods as well as the proposed method, and the obtained results are compared.
