Abstract

This work showed that: fuzzy sets are not a panacea; in many cases, their use may only be relevant within the framework of an expert system; and when using fuzzy sets for actual applications, there is a need to develop or identify the basic input, i. e. membership functions. More recently, the work has concentrated in four areas: study of human decision making process; identification of areas where either expert systems or fuzzy sets, or both, are relevant; use and development of expert systems; development of techniques to obtain membership functions. Some findings regarding membership functions and areas of application of fuzzy sets and expert systems are presented.
