Abstract

Selecting the most suitable secondary school for a student is a multi-criteria decision problem. In this paper we propose a system that uses fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (AHP) to define and evaluate linguistic variables that represent these criteria. This system takes some of them as crisp inputs and a set of fuzzy linguistic values from the user that denote relative importance measures, as deemed by the user, for every possible pair of these factors. Then it uses Fuzzy AHP to calculate absolute weights for each factor and comparative scores for a few user-selected schools for each criterion. These values are used to assign a final score to each school, which is the measurement of its suitability for the given input.
