Criteria for evaluating fuzzy ranking methods. (English) Zbl 0747.90003
Summary: Four criteria for evaluating fuzzy ranking methods are investigated: fuzzy preference representation, rationality of fuzzy ordering, distinguishability, and robustness. Based on these criteria, two existing ranking methods [see S. M. Baas and H. Kwakernaak, Automatica 13, 47-58 (1977; Zbl 0363.90010); K. Nakamura, Fuzzy Sets Syst. 20, 147-162 (1986; Zbl 0618.90001)] are evaluated and a new, improved ranking method is suggested.
