A New Multiple Criteria Decision Making Method and its Application in Cloud Computing for Education

Heng Sun


Cloud computing can extend the traditional education framework. In education, cloud can provide students and teachers with tools to deploy computing resources on-demand for lectures and labs according to their learning needs. But how to select a perfect cloud server is a key point, which is considered as a multiple criteria decision making problem. So, in this paper, intuitionistic fuzzy set is first introduced to express the decision maker’s views. Intuitionistic fuzzy set (IFS) includes a membership function and a non-membership function. More importantly, a new operator with choquet integral is developed to deal with assessment of education using cloud computing. Meanwhile, score function and accuracy function are demonstrated to obtain the final result. Finally, we develop this method to apply in a case study to show its applicability.
