Fuzzy Logic on the Frontiers of Decision Analysis and Expert Systems, Reprint from the NAFIPS'96 Conference

H.-J. Zimmerman

Decision Analysis and Decision Support is an area in which applications of fuzzy set theory can be found since the early 70’s. Still there are areas, such as fuzzy controls, that have gained much wider acceptance in practice than fuzzy decision analysis. This paper tries to describe where fuzzy decision support stands now and what would have to be done to gain wider acceptance. One of the major conclusions is, that experimentation is needed and that empirical work in the engineering area is quite different from empirical work in human decision making. Interdisciplinary team work may be much more important in the latter area than in the former.
