Paraconsistent Method of Prospective Scenarios (PMPS)

Conference paper
Part of the IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology book series (IFIPAICT, volume 438)


This work presents the Paraconsistent Method of Prospective Scenarios (PMPS) in order to support organizations in their strategic planning, being a useful tool, as it serves a noble task. The method is based on non-classical logic, called the Paraconsistent Annotated Evidential Logic Eτ (Logic Eτ), this logic is excelling in the fields of research and it’s main characteristics are set by the thought of experts, generating input parameters and been consolidated by the collective way that translates into mathematical terms. Logic Eτ is not trivial and has the capacity to manipulate imprecise and conflicting information.
