Picture 2-tuple linguistic aggregation operators in multiple attribute decision making
In this paper, we investigate the multiple attribute decision-making problems with picture 2-tuple linguistic information. Then, we utilize arithmetic and geometric operations to develop several picture 2-tuple linguistic aggregation operators. The prominent characteristic of these proposed operators is studied. Then, we have utilized these operators to develop some approaches to solving the picture 2-tuple linguistic multiple attribute decision-making problems. Finally, a practical example for enterprise resource planning (ERP) system selection is given to verify the developed approach and to demonstrate its practicality and effectiveness.
