On the Relevance of Fuzzy Sets in Analytics

Carlsson Christer (Ed.), On the Relevance of Fuzzy Sets in Analytics, Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing 298, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2013.


The title of this contribution to On Fuzziness has a history and a reason that bridges the past, the present and the future. The history is a paper I wrote called “On the Relevance of Fuzzy Sets in Management Science Methodology” which was published in an edited book on Fuzzy Sets and Decision Analysis (H. J. Zimmermann, L. A. Zadeh and B. R. Gaines (eds.), in the TIMS Studies in Management Sciences series in 1984) [2]. This was a time when we tried to make the case for fuzzy sets in management science and as a support theory for managers who plan the future, and solve management problems and make decisions in their daily activities.
