The main purpose of this article is to characterize a novel neutrosophic hypersoft set hybrid called possibility single-valued neutrosophic hypersoft set (psv-NHSS) for evaluation of investment projects by using its aggregation operations and decision-support system.
Two approaches are employed in this article: set-theoretic approach and algorithmic approach. The former one is used to characterize the novel notion of psv-NHSS and its aggregations. The later one is used to construct a decision-support system by using the aggregations like core matrix, maximum-valued decision, minimum-valued decision and scoring-valued decision of psv-NHSS. The adopted algorithm is implemented in real-world scenario of hydroelectric power station project evaluation for investment purpose.
The proposed model is more flexible and reliable as it addresses the limitations of literature on neutrosophic set, neutrosophic soft set and other fuzzy set-like models by considering possibility degree, hypersoft setting and neutrosophic setting collectively.
It has limitations for decision-making situations where selection of parameters is of uncertain nature.
The scope of this study may cover a wide range of applications in many fields of mathematical sciences like artificial intelligence, optimization, multiple-criteria decision-making (MCDM), theoretical computer science, soft computing, mathematical statistics, etc.
The proposed model bears the characteristics of most of the relevant existing models collectively and fulfills their insufficiencies by introducing a novel approximate mapping.
