Gradation of Raw Jute Fibres Using Evaluation based on Distance from Average Solution (EDAS) Method

Gradation of Raw Jute Fibres Using Evaluation based on Distance from Average Solution (EDAS) Method Alike cotton fibre, the quality of jute fibres is not uniform; rather, it varies from place to place owing to various reasons. However, jute pricing is fixed based on its quality. The traditional ‘hand and eye’ method of jute grading is totally done by subjective assessment. Modern BIS system is a more scientific approach of jute gradation based on six apposite physical fibre parameters like strength, defect, root content, fineness, colour and bulk density; the latter two parameters are still assessed subjectively. In this paper, a newly developed EDAS (evaluation based on distance from average solution) approach of MCDM (multi-criteria decision making) has been proposed for ranking/gradation of nine candidate jute fibres on the basis of the above-mentioned six fibre parameters.

Abstract

Alike cotton fibre, the quality of jute fibres is not uniform; rather, it varies from place to place owing to various reasons. However, jute pricing is fixed based on its quality. The traditional ‘hand and eye’ method of jute grading is totally done by subjective assessment. Modern BIS system is a more scientific approach of jute gradation based on six apposite physical fibre parameters like strength, defect, root content, fineness, colour and bulk density; the latter two parameters are still assessed subjectively. In this paper, a newly developed EDAS (evaluation based on distance from average solution) approach of MCDM (multi-criteria decision making) has been proposed for ranking/gradation of nine candidate jute fibres on the basis of the above-mentioned six fibre parameters. The proposed approach demonstrates a significant agreement in ranking performance with the earlier methods. The sensitivity analysis based on changing the weights of criteria further bolsters the stability of ranking performance of the proposed approach.
