A standard linear programming problem applied to a production process, with uncertain coefficients
and right-hand sides
in the constraints, is considered. It is assumed that statistical confidence intervals of the uncertain
can be calculated. Each
is substituted by a
-level fuzzy number, which is derived by making use of a statistical confidence interval. In this way, a fuzzy linear programming problem is obtained. Similarly two statistical confidence intervals are used to derive
-interval-valued fuzzy numbers, which are used as coefficients and right-hand sides in the constraints of an alternative fuzzy linear programming problem. The defuzzification of both fuzzy problems resulting in crisp linear programming problems is carried out using the theory presented at the beginning of the article and some known results from the literature. An illustrative numerical example is solved.
