Aggregation Operators in Engineering Design

  • Endre Pap
Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 97)

Abstract

Engineering design is conducted with incomplete and imperfect information, and in this paper there are presented some of the tools for decision making under risk and uncertainty and the application of these tools to engineering design. First it is presented an axiomatization of engineering design based on von Neumannn and Morgenstern axiomatization. Then it is given a general definition of decision making problem which enables to apply also fuzzy systems and non-additive measures. Special attention is taken on different aggregation operators which can model the decision making in engineering design. A procedure for finding the global maximum as well as some procedures for identification of non-additive measure are presented.

Keywords
