An Empirical Study on Assessing Optimal Type of Distribution Park: Applying Fuzzy Multicriteria Q-Analysis method

K.L. Lee, S.C. Lin

In this paper, through an empirical study it is explored how respondents viewed suitable modes on locations for developing a distribution park. A fuzzy multiple criteria Q-analysis (MCQA) method is used to empirically evaluate location development for suitable types of international distribution park. The fuzzy MCQA method integrates MCQA, a fuzzy measure method and a fuzzy grade classification method. This improves the constraints evaluated by decision-makers, resulting in an explicit result value for each criterion to be evaluated, greatly decreasing the complexity of the evaluation process and preserving the advantages of the traditional MCQA method.
