Venue:Room 1003, Center Teaching Building

Introduction of Content:

Decision-making problem is the process of finding the best option from all of the feasible alternatives. In classical Multi criteria decision making (MCDM) methods, the ratings and the weights of the criteria are known precisely, whereas in the real world, in an imprecise and uncertain environment, it is an unrealistic assumption that the knowledge and representation of a decision maker or expert are so precise. So, to describe and treat imprecise and uncertain elements present in a decision problem, fuzzy and stochastic approaches are frequently used. The report will tell us how to use fuzzy sets and fuzzy logics ideas to solve the MCDM problem.
