Abstract

Due to intense competition in tenders and increasing complexity of the documents, participants are looking to win the bidding and increase profits due to existing limitations. It is common solution among bidders to consider the price down in tender and retrieve profits during implementing projects in order to the weakness of the employer, ambiguities in the documents and administrative environment. Therefore, in this study due to lack of a complete solution, a new algorithm is provided with regard to profit maximization of contractor with three main stages that consist of pre-tender, tender and post-tender by providing a method based on Fuzzy Multi Criteria Decision Making and game theory. For evaluate the results, a case study in a construction project is used. The evaluation results showed that in the first stage the results of algorithm and case study was same, but in the second and third stages the algorithm had better results.
