Fuzzy Sets and Possibility Theory in Reliability Studies of Man Machine Systems
In man-machine control and communication systems, the theory of probability alone is unsuitable for the evaluation of system reliability. The present paper introduces the fuzzy sets and possibility theory for such analysis. The analysis is useful in speech recognition, robotics, medical diagnosis and picture analysis problems.
