ABSTRACT
In this paper the current researchers address the quantitative methodology for determining possible implement able optimal solution to project selection problem. The purpose of this paper is to present an application of goal programming as an aid of decision making tool in project selection. The model outputs most advantageous projects to pursue with limited resource keeping in mind multiple constraints to attend the multiple objectives. Here in this paper Quality Function Deployment (QFD) has been used in combination with AHP under fuzziness to select the rank of the project as per customer's requirement primarily. Then the GP model has been considered determines which program to pursue with an effort to maximize the profit under limited budget. The authors have proposed this integrated framework which will help the manager or appropriate decision making authorities to take proper project not only from economic point of view but also can identify technical requirements followed by customer's requirements.
