- In this paper, a novel fuzzy MADM model with some specifications that make it distinguished from the available methods. Decision matrix is defined as a full fuzzy structure. The model only uses information on the alternatives i.e. does not require pre-assigned weight values for the attributes. The weights will be achieved through a matching mechanism between the obtainable alternatives' preferences and a fuzzy preference relation of the alternatives stated by decision makers. This is applied using a mathematical programming model. Since the resulted model is non-linear and hard to solve using the classic optimization methods, Simulated Annealing is proposed to find optimum or near optimum weights. Having the weights of attributes, the alternativesâ€™ ranking is determined using the statistical measures of their fuzzy values. The model is applied on the project selection problem to study its efficiency and applicability to MADM problems.
