As developing high-quality software within the allotted time and budget is a key element for a productive and successful software project, the economic and quality factors are evaluated separately by fuzzy multi-criteria decision approaches and the estimates are combined to obtain the preference degree of each software development project alternatives to select the most appropriate one. Using the proposed approach, the ambiguities involved in the assessment data can be effectively represented and processed to assure a more convincing and effective decision-making solution.",
