Scoring methods are the most frequently used multiple attribute decision-making methods because of their simplicity and efficiency. In this chapter, Simple Additive Weighting (SAW) and Weighted Product Methods (WPM) are extended to their fuzzy versions by using neutrosophic sets. These sets not only handle the vagueness but also clarify indeterminacy of decision makers’ opinions. This also lets us discriminate between relativity and absoluteness. We apply interval-valued neutrosophic SAW and WPM methods for selection of insurance options.
