## Abstract

The derivation of mathematical models that can efficiently describe real-world problems is generally an overwhelming or even impossible task, due to the complexity and inherent ambiguity of characteristics that these problems can possess. As L. A. Zadeh (1973), the founder of the theory of fuzzy sets, puts it
