In this study, a fuzzy multi-item economic order quantity (EOQ) problem is solved by employing four different fuzzy ranking methods. All of the parameters of the multi-item EOQ problem are defined as triangular fuzzy numbers. Fuzzy ranking methods are used to rank the fuzzy objective values and to handle the constraints in the model. The results obtained by employing different fuzzy ranking methods are also compared.
