This book shows how the application of fuzzy logic can benefit management, group decision making, strategic planning, supply chain management and other business imperatives. The theoretical analysis is fully supported by real-life case studies. The book develops themes that businesses can use to master effectiveness and quality, work with flexibility, and support continuous learning in the organization and the individual.

From the reviews: "This well-written book presents application of fuzzy logic in the area of management. The book starts with a gentle introduction to management and decision support systems, which is followed by ! the principles of fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic arithmetic. ! The book concludes with ! applications of fuzzy logic to mobile technology, including how mobile technology can be supported with software agents." (Efstratios Rappos, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1092 (18), 2006) "This book presents how fuzzy logic can be applied to handle the uncertainty in management ! . I found this book interesting and informative ! . the readers interested in the field of knowledge management and fuzzy logic will also find it pleasant reading. ! It contains the right material and is written in a way that someone new to the subject should find relatively easy to understand. ! I highly recommend it for someone looking to apply fuzzy logic for knowledge management ! ." (R Qu, Journal of the Operational Research Society, Vol. 56 (6), 2005) "It is quite well written and offers detailed presentations of a wide range of application areas with a presentation style that is easy to follow. ! For a university course taught in the right context and at the right level, this would even make a great textbook. ! Overall, this compact book contains an impressive level of detail both in fundamental concepts and in the details of the applications. This is a mandatory source for anyone interested in advanced methodological applications of management." (H. W. Lewis, III, International Journal of General Systems, Vol. 34 (3), 2005)
