This study constructs a practical fuzzy three-dimensional axial assignment model, and proposes two efficient algorithms to solve the model. In our case, the model is applied to team performance management in a company to promote the performance of all members in a team. Two algorithms, namely the index-based branch and bound (B&B) algorithm and the trade-off algorithm, which is a hybrid of the trade-off and B&B concepts, are proposed. A numerical example is presented to illustrate these two algorithms. The computational results show that the proposed algorithms are sufficiently efficient and accurate. Two special cases are also discussed.

'n Praktiese, wasige, driedimensionele aksialetoekenningsmodel word voorgehou en twee doeltreffende algoritmes om die model op te los word voorgestel. Die model word toegepas op die spanprestasiebestuur in 'n maatskappy met die doel om die spanlede se vertoning te verbeter. Twee algoritmes, naamlik die indeksgebaseerde vertak-en-begrens algoritme en die kompromie algoritme, word voorgestel. 'n Numeriese voorbeeld word ter illustrasie van die twee algoritmes voorgehou. Die resultate toon dat die voorgestelde algoritmes doeltreffend en akkuraat is. Twee spesiale gevalle word ook bespreek.
