An extension of multiattribute utility analysis for the multiple-agents decision problem is presented. Although multiattribute utility analysis is concerned with decisionmaking under uncertainty, assessment of parameters of the multiattribute utility functions is actually performed deterministically by the single decisionmaker. This paper is concerned with fuzzy evaluation of the multiattribute utility function, which is based on a fuzzy preference ordering and scaling constants using membership functions of the fuzzy set theory. The fuzzy approach treats a conceptual imprecision that accrues from a multiplicity of evaluation. A fuzzy multiattribute utility function with multiple-agents evaluation is derived. A computer package ICOPSS/FR for assuring the transitivity of collective preference ordering in an agreement level is demonstrated for assessment of the fuzzy multiattribute utility functions.
