Soft computing techniques are innovative tools that use nature-inspired algorithms to run predictive analysis of industries from business to software measurement. These tools have gained momentum in recent years for their practicality and flexibility.

The Handbook of Research on Fuzzy and Rough Set Theory in Organizational Decision Making collects both empirical and applied research in the field of fuzzy set theory, and bridges the gap between the application of soft computational approaches and the organizational decision making process. This publication is a pivotal reference for business professionals, IT specialists, software engineers, and advanced students of business and information technology.

Reviews and Testimonials

Highly recommended for faculty, business people and students in Management and Computer Science. They would really appreciate the value of the book. It would also prove useful in electronics, both civil or mechanical where data needs to be analyzed to draw inference. This book would be of immense value to both managers who implement organizational programs and decision makers.

Computer scientists, electronic engineers, information scientists, and business scholars summarize constituent paradigms underlying fuzzy and rough sets and evolutionary computational intelligence methods, and show how to apply them in business decision making. Their topics include solving a basic inventory model in fuzzy and interval environments: a fuzzy and interval differential equation approach, a fuzzy dynamic programming problem for single additive constraint with additively separable return by means of trapezoidal membership functions, the genetic-based estimation of biomass using a geographical information system: study area Vellore, parameter reduction in soft set models and applications in decision making, and investment climate factors with reference to firm performance in Bangladesh: a prospective cohort study.
