Abstract. In the paper, we propose a method for finding the solution of fuzzy linear goal programming(FLGP) problems where each objective function has a prescribed fuzzy goal characterized by piecewise linear membership functions. In view of the fuzzy membership functions and the given constraints, we employ deviational variables and then the problem is transformed into a classical linear programming(LP) problem. The proposed method is mainly based on the concepts of piecewise linear functions due to Charnes and Cooper  and Can and Houk . An example is illustrated to show the more applicability of the proposed method.
