Multiple-attribute decision making problems based on SVTNH methods

Abstract

The neutrosophic set (NS) is a leading tool in modeling of situations involving incomplete, indeterminate and inconsistent information. The single-valued neutrosophic sets (SVNs) is more useful tool than neutrosophic sets in some applications of engineering and scientific problems. In this paper, we study Hamacher operations and operations between single-valued trapezoidal neutrosophic numbers. Then we propose the single-valued trapezoidal neutrosophic Hamacher weighted arithmetic averaging (SVTNHWA) operator, single-valued trapezoidal neutrosophic Hamacher ordered weighted arithmetic averaging (SVTNHOWA) operator, single-valued trapezoidal neutrosophic Hamacher hybrid weighted averaging (SVTNHHWA) operator, single-valued trapezoidal neutrosophic Hamacher weighted geometric averaging (SVTNHWGA) operator and single-valued trapezoidal neutrosophic Hamacher ordered weighted geometric averaging (SVTNHOWGA) operator and single-valued trapezoidal neutrosophic Hamacher hybrid weighted geometric averaging (SVTNHHWGA) operator, and obtain some of their properties. Furthermore, we developed a multiple-attribute decision-making method in single-valued trapezoidal neutrosophic (SVTN) environment based on these operators. Finally, we proposed an application of MADM problem in assessment of potential of software system commercialization.
