Abstract

The aim of this paper is to identify and discuss some of the important and critical decision criteria including cleaner production implementation of an efficient system to prioritize competitive priorities. Fuzzy analytic network process (FANP) based methodology is discussed to tackle the different decision criteria involved in the selection of competitive priorities in current business scenario. FANP is an efficient tool to handle the fuzziness of the data involved in deciding the preferences of different decision variables. The linguistic level of comparisons produced by the professionals and experts for each comparison are tapped in the form of triangular fuzzy numbers to construct fuzzy pairwise comparison matrices. The implementation of the system is demonstrated by a problem having four stages of hierarchy which contains different criteria, attributes and alternatives at wider perspective. The proposed model can provide a hierarchical framework for the cleaner production implemented organization to select on its competitive priorities. © 2007 Springer-Verlag.
