The aim of this paper is to develop a framework to aid in the evaluation and selection of KM tools and technologies. n this paper, we investigate the fuzzy linear programming technique (FLP) for multiple attribute group decision making (MAGDM) problems with preference information on alternatives. To reflect the decision maker's subjective preference information and to determine the weight vector of attributes, the linear programming technique for multidimensional analysis of preference (LINMAP) is used. The LINMAP method is based on pairwise comparisons of alternatives given by decision makers and generates the best compromise alternative as the solution that has the shortest distance to the positive ideal solution. Our aim is to develop a LINMAP in MAGDM problem, where decision makers (DM) give their preferences on alternatives in a fuzzy relation. Through the proposed methodology in this research, enterprises can reduce the mismatch between the capability and implementation of the KM technology, and greatly enhance the effectiveness of implementation of the KMS. Finally, the developed model is applied to a real case of assisting decision-makers in a leading logistics company in Turkey to illustrate the use of the proposed method
