Abstract

Multi-attribute group decision-making (MAGDM) is very significant technique for selecting an alternative from the provided list. But the major problem is to deal with the information fusion during the information. Aczel-Alsina t-norm (AATN) and Aczel-Alsina t-conorm (AATCN) are the most generalized and flexible t-norm (TN) and t-conorm (TCN) which is used for information processing. Moreover, the interval-valued T-spherical fuzzy set (IVTSFS) is the latest framework to cover the maximum information from the real-life scenarios. Hence, the major contribution of this paper is to deal the information while the MAGDM process by introducing new aggregation operators (AOs). Consequently, the interval-valued T-spherical fuzzy (IVTSF), Aczel-Alsina weighted averaging (IVTSFAAWA), IVTSF Aczel-Alsina (IVTSFAA) ordered weighted averaging (IVTSFAAOWA), IVTSFAA weighted geometric (IVTSFAAWG), IVTSFAA ordered weighted geometric (IVTSFAAOWG), and IVTSFAA hybrid weighted geometric (IVTSFAAHWG) operators are developed. It is shown that the proposed operators are the valid and the results obtained are reliable by discussing some basic properties. To justify the developed AOs, an example of the MAGDM is discussed. The sensitivity of these AOs is observed keeping in view of the variable parameter. To show the importance of the newly developed theory, a comparison of the proposed AOs is established with already existing operators.
