The paper presents a method dealing under imprecision and uncertainty. It is assumed that over the set of elements (alternatives) there exist a finite number of probabilistic sets representing various criteria. These sets are aggregated using different connectives in order to obtain a final decision set. Using criteria based on stochastic dominance and mean-variance values the final ordering of the alternatives is proposed here as well. The ideas are illustrated by means of numerical example.
