Satisfaction and Fuzzy Decision Functions

  • Ronald R. Yager

Abstract

This paper is interested in the question of multi objective decision making using fuzzy sets. In particular, we introduce a methodology in which a decision maker can modulate a decision function by some measure of his satisfaction with this function. We also discuss the question of selecting a most preferred fuzzy subset over the unit interval.
