B. PARDHA SARADHI*, N. RAVI SHANKAR, CH. SURYANARAYANA

Abstract


In this paper, Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) is applied to project management to determine the critical path in a fuzzy project network. Trapezoidal fuzzy numbers are added to determine the final evaluation value of fuzzy activity times to determine the final evaluation value of fuzzy activity for each path in the network. A numerical example related to real life problem is provided to explain the procedure of proposed TOPSIS method in determining critical path with different criteria.


Keywords


Trapezoidal fuzzy numbers, TOPSIS, Project network, Critical path.
