Decision making requires multiple perspectives of different people as one single decision maker may have not enough knowledge to well solve a problem alone. This is particularly true when the decision environment becomes more complex. More organizational decisions are made now in groups than ever before. Group decision making is thus a process of arriving at a judgment or a solution for a decision problem based on the input and feedback of multiple individuals. At the same time in practice, multi-criteria problems at tactical and strategic levels often involve fuzziness in their criteria and decision makers’ judgments. Relevant alternatives are evaluated according to a number of criteria. Fuzzy logic based multi-criteria group decision support is justified to analysis long-term options for Belgian energy policy in this paper.
