Fuzzy sets and decision analysis. (English) Zbl 0921.90007

Summary: This survey points out recent advances in multiple attribute decision making methods dealing with fuzzy or ill-defined information. Fuzzy MAUT as well as fuzzy outranking methods are reviewed. Aggregation procedures, choice problems and treatment of interactive attributes are covered. Trends in research and open problems are indicated.
