Special Issue Information
Uncertainties are an inevitable part of decision making in today’s fast-growing world. These uncertainties can show themselves in the determination of criteria or related actions. Therefore, approaches that can help decision makers solve problems in the ambiguous environment are of great interest. Fuzzy set theory has become one of the reliable methods in this field due to its continuous development and flexibility in challenging uncertainty issues. It is widely used in solving various MCDM problems such as environmental sustainability, healthcare waste management, service quality, supply chains, etc. Many decision-making methods based on this theory have been developed or are being developed. In addition, the fuzzy theory has even been used in operations research, giving rise to fuzzy programming, and it has been integrated with OR techniques such as goal programming.
Furthermore, fuzzy-based decision support systems have been developed in various fields; for example, the evaluation of suppliers in the supply chain, disease diagnosis, appropriate treatment determination, etc. Despite the mentioned cases, there is still a vast space for implementing fuzzy set theory in developing MCDM methods and solving decision-making problems. Thus, this Special Issue aims to contribute to developing and implementing fuzzy set theory in multi-criteria decision making to solve problems under uncertain conditions. We also welcome the submission of articles that utilize this theory in the optimization field, such as fuzzy programming, integration of fuzzy theory and goal programming, etc.
