Summary: A method of estimation of unknown crisp parameters in a linear regression model with fuzzy variables and crisp parameters is suggested by minimizing the sum of the squares of the Diamond distances between the values from the model and the values from the observed data. The method is a generalization of the least squares estimation method from the classical linear regression model to the fuzzy regression model.
