    Abstract

    The coordination of decision authority is noteworthy especially in a complex multi-level structured organization, which faces multi-objective problems to achieve overall organization targets. However, the standard formulation of mathematical programming problems assumes that a single decision maker made the decisions. Nevertheless it should be appropriate to establish the formulations of mathematical models based on multi-level programming method embracing multiple objectives. Yet, it is realized that sometimes estimating the coefficients of objective functions in the multi-objective model are difficult when the statistical data contain random and fuzzy information. Hence, this paper proposes a fuzzy goal programming additive model, to solve a multi-level multi-objective problem in a fuzzy environment, which can attain a satisfaction solution. A numerical example of production planning problem illustrates the proposed solution approach and highlights its advantages that consider the inherent uncertainties in developing the multi-level multi-objective model.
