Neuro-Fuzzy Approximation of Multi-Criteria Decision-Making QFD Methodology
This chapter demonstrates how a neuro-fuzzy approach could produce outputs of a further-modified multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) quality function deployment (QFD) model within the required error rate. The improved fuzzified MCDM model uses the modified S-curve membership function (MF) as stated in an earlier chapter. The smooth and flexible logistic membership function (MF) finds out fuzziness patterns in disparate level-of-satisfaction for the integrated analytic hierarchy process (AHP-QFD model. The key objective of this chapter is to guide decision makers in finding out the best candidate-alternative robot with a higher degree of satisfaction and with a lesser degree of fuzziness.
