Accordingly, the eight factors were identified. On the basis of determinate factors, a questionnaire was designed based on DEMATEL technique and administered to all experts to explain the relationships between those factors. After data were collected, the importance of assessments provided by experts was explained and comments from them were addressed using intuitionistic fuzzy entropy. Finally intuitionistic fuzzy based DEMATEL technique was used to show causal relationships.
