Paper Title:
A Linear Goal Programming Model for Weight Calculation in Fuzzy AHP and its Application in Product Development
  Abstract

The key issue of FAHP application is how to derive fuzzy weights from fuzzy pairwise comparison matrix. The most of applications, however, were founding avoiding the use of sophisticated approaches such as fuzzy least squares method and using a simple extent analysis method to derive fuzzy weight from pairwise comparison matrix for the sake of simplicity. But the extent analysis method proves to be incorrect and may lead to a wrong decision result. So, this paper proposes a sound yet simple linear goal programming model to derive weights from pairwise fuzzy comparison matrix, which takes minimizing inconsistence degree of comparison matrix as objective and obtain a normalized weight vector finally. The proposed model is validated by an application to new product development scheme screening decision making.
