This paper describes a new process-plan selection method using a modified Fuzzy Quantification Theory(FQT). The problem of process-plan selection can be characterized by multiple attributes and used subjective, uncertain information. Fuzzy Quantification Theory is used for handling such information because it is a useful tool when human judgment or evaluation is quantified via linguistic variables, and the proposed method is concerned with the selection of a process plan by derivation of the values of categories for each attribute. In this paper, a modified Fuzzy Quantification Theory(FQT) is described and the procedure of this approach is explained and examples illustrated.
