Uncertain Production Planning Using Fuzzy Simulation
Some industrial problems lack of statistical information, so third party information (experts, surveys, etc) is often used for planning. This chapter presents a method for simulating a production planning scenario where tasks have no probabilistic execution times, using experts opinions. We use fuzzy execution times to simulate the mean flow time of the system under non-probabilistic uncertainty.
