Multiple attribute decision analysis (MADA) is an important part of the modern decision science. In fact, it has been increasingly used in the literature. Therefore, the study of sorting problems is an active research topic in the multiple criteria decision aid (MCDA) area. Although, it is difficult to quantitatively and precisely express the evaluation criteria to solve real-life sorting problems. To solve this fuzziness and vagueness, the intuitionistic fuzzy set (IFS) theory achieved great success in various recent researches. Therefore, this paper presents a novel extension of the FlowSort method, which is a PROMETHEE-based sorting method, based on the intuitionistic fuzzy set theory. To clarify this new extension, an illustrative example and an empirical comparison with other MCDM methods are presented.
