(i), we calculate tangent similarity measures for different values of [lambda] between ideal alternatives (Table 5) and the decision elements in Table 4 (see Table 6).
The number of logistics decision elements (objects) is indicated by the size of the organization, the number of products and the complexity of the products measured as the number of components.
