objectives. For this aim, this problem is solved in the three phases.
First, finding the least number of distribution centers (DCs), second,
locating them in the best possible location, that this expresses the quality
of the DCs locations which is evaluated by studying the value of appropriate
attributes affecting the quality of location, so the value of each location
is determined by using multi attribute decision making models and finally,
finding the minimum costs of locating the facilities. Then regarding the
obtained value the functions are formed and with using fuzzy-goal programming,
the locations of DCs are determined. In the last phase, locating some
agency in a real-world for a cooler factory is determined via., lingo
