	%X Although so far, many methods for ranking fuzzy numbers
have been discussed broadly, most of them contained some shortcomings,
such as requirement of complicated calculations, inconsistency
with human intuition and indiscrimination. The motivation of
this study is to develop a model for ranking fuzzy numbers based
on the lexicographical ordering which provides decision-makers with
a simple and efficient algorithm to generate an ordering founded on
a precedence. The main emphasis here is put on the ease of use
and reliability. The effectiveness of the proposed method is finally
demonstrated by including a comprehensive comparing different
ranking methods with the present one.
