Generally, in real world multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) problems, we concern with inaccurate data. This paper transforms a fuzzy multiple criteria decision making (FMCDM) problem into two linear programming models based on simple additive weighting method (SAW). The new linear models calculate two scores for each alternative in optimistic and pessimistic viewpoints. To rank the alternatives, the numerical value of the arithmetic mean of good score and bad score is used as final score of each alternative. Finally, we illustrate the practical applications of the proposed method in selection an industrial zone for construct dairy products factory.
