Measuring the distance is one of the most important components in planning industrial units. Since human words and reasons are vague and imprecise, the distance between fuzzy numbers in most industrial units is required in real-world decision-making and planning. In many cases, ranking occur in fuzzy conditions which obtained information is uncertain, thus it creates a possibility of confusion for the designer in ranking problems. In this study, first the importance and application of distance in industrial units ranking and expressed some ranking methods are dealt, then a new algorithm will be provided for the distance between two fuzzy numbers which is more precise and quicker than previous methods. The proposed method can be a very suitable management strategy to implement it in reality.
