Abstract :

Social responsibility is the most important thing to consider while working on a project. When deciding on a project or taking part in a bid, it is crucial to understand the nature and potential consequences of the risks involved. Attempting to implement projects with cutting-edge technologies appears to be necessary, necessitating up-to-date and continuous planning to implement the relevant matters in light of the ever-increasing growth of urban communities, the need to carry out tasks, and the rising standard of living. Due to the strong demand, these strategies try to improve quality while decreasing prices. In the beginning, Smarandache suggests using neutrosophic sets. These sets are an improvement above traditional fuzzy set theory in reflecting the uncertainty and fuzziness of real-world issues. Three decision-making states are considered: uncertainty, truthiness, and falseness. The fuzzy set degree in Zadeh's classic theory is merely the membership function. On the other hand, three membership functions are considered in a neutrosophic setting. An indeterminacy degree is considered, which is not the case with intuitionistic fuzzy sets. To express decision makers' perspectives on the truthiness (T), falsity (F), and indeterminacy (I) for a fuzzy set concurrently, this paper expands the usual neutrosophic TOPSIS approach to interval-valued neutrosophic. One example of how the suggested strategy might be put to use is to prioritize initiatives in the realm of corporate social responsibility using a combination of expert opinion and objective criteria.
