The applicability of Net Present Value (NPV) in an

\r\ninvestment project is becoming more and more popular in the field

\r\nof engineering economics. The classical NPV methodology involves

\r\nonly the precise and accurate data of the investment project. In the

\r\npresent communication, we give a new mathematical model for NPV

\r\nwhich uses the concept of intuitionistic fuzzy set theory. The proposed

\r\nmodel is based on triangular intuitionistic fuzzy number, which may

\r\nbe known as Intuitionistic Fuzzy Net Present Value (IFNPV). The

\r\nmodel has been applied to an example and the results are presented.<\/p>\r\n","references":"[1] Van Groenendaal. W, Kleijnen.
