Abstract

The objective of this work is to present a triangular interval type-2 (TIT2) intuitionistic fuzzy sets and their corresponding aggregation operators, namely, TIT2 intuitionistic fuzzy weighted averaging, TIT2 intuitionistic fuzzy ordered weighted averaging and TIT2 intuitionistic fuzzy hybrid averaging based on Frank norm operation laws. Furthermore, based on these operators, an approach to multi-criteria decision-making, in which assessments are in the form of TIT2 intuitionistic fuzzy numbers has been developed. A practical example to illustrate the decision-making process has been presented and compared their results with the existing operator results.
