uncertainty and imprecision of the reasoning process while using decision support tools during prenegotiations. The pre-negotiation problem is regarded as decision making under uncertainty, based on multiple criteria of quantitative and qualitative nature, where the imprecise decision-maker’s judgments are represented as fuzzy numbers. A new fuzzy modification of the Analytic Hierarchy Process is applied as an evaluation technique. The proposed fuzzy prioritization method uses fuzzy pairwise comparison judgments rather than exact numerical values of the comparison ratios and transforms the initial fuzzy prioritization problem into a non-linear program. Unlike the known fuzzy prioritization techniques, the proposed metod derives crisp weights from consistent and inconsistent fuzzy comparison matrices, which eliminates the need of additional aggregation and ranking procedures. A detailed numerical example, illustrating the application of the approach to services evaluation is given.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
