Summary Fuzzy set approaches are suitable to use when the modeling of human knowledge is necessary and when human evaluations are needed. Fuzzy set theory is recognized as an important problem modeling and solution technique. It has been studied extensively over the past 40 years. Most of the early interest in fuzzy set theory pertained to representing uncertainty in human cognitive processes. Fuzzy set theory is now applied to problems in engineering, business, medical and related health sciences, and the natural sciences. This book handles the fuzzy cases of classical engineering economics topics. It contains 15 original research and application chapters including different topics of fuzzy engineering economics. This book will provide a useful resource of ideas, techniques, and methods for present and further research in the applications of fuzzy sets in engineering economics
