In real life, information available for certain situations is vague and such uncertainty is unavoidable. One possible solution is to consider the knowledge of experts on the parameters involved as intuitionistic fuzzy data. We examine a linear programming problem in which all the coefficients are intuitionistic in nature. An approach is presented to solve an intuitionistic fuzzy linear programming problem. In this proposed approach, a procedure for allocating limited resources effectively among competing demands is developed. An example is given to highlight the illustrated study.
