Topic: The Use of Intuitionistic Fuzzy DEMATEL in Developing Cause and Effect Criteria in Sub-Contractors Selection
Abstract: Subcontractors usually help general contractors to overcome problems that related to the need for special expertise, limitation in finances and shortage in resources. However, selecting a good sub-contractor is not a trivial task as many criteria need to be wisely categorized. The purpose of this paper is to develop groups of causes and effect criteria of sub-contractors’ selection using Intuitionistic Fuzzy DEMATEL method. A group of experts’ opinions were sought to provide linguistic evaluations regarding the degree of influence between criteria in sub-contractors selection. Matlab software was used to assist in developing causal diagram where groups of cause and effect criteria in sub-contractors selection are identified. The results show that four criteria are grouped as cause criteria while six criteria are grouped as effect criteria. The result also suggests that the criteria ‘experience’ is the main cause that influences the selection of subcontractors. The categorization of cause and effect criteria would be a great significance for the practical implementation of the sub-contractors selection.
