According to properties of applied aggregation function and properties of initial fuzzy measures, some properties of constructed fuzzy measure are proved. Additionally, one new extended aggregation function named extended weighted arithmetic mean of distorted arguments is introduced, and its relevant properties are proved. It is shown that this extended aggregation function, with appropriated<br />parameters, can be suitable for construction of new fuzzy measures.

R.KashefiDepartment of Mathematics Education, Farhangian University, Tehran, IranJournal Article20200902One of the most important problems after natural disasters in every country is the preparation of temporary accommodations for victims. The developers of preventive plans are also faced with numerous uncertainties in this crisis management topic. Furthermore, uncertainty is not defined in classical mathematical sets. Therefore, the use of intuitionistic fuzzy sets, which include considerations for uncertainty, can be useful in prospective planning in order to counteract possible risks. The main aim of this study is to propose a combined method using risk management and Intuitionistic Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (IF-AHP) for locating and prioritizing the post-earthquake temporary accommodation sites. To this end, the city of Sanandaj in Iran was selected as the case study of this method. First, brainstorming sessions with 9 crisis management experts from various organizations of Kurdistan province were used to determine 6 decision-making criteria. These criteria were based on identified risks in temporary accommodation process after an earthquake in the region, and criteria extracted from previous studies regarding temporary accommodation locations. The possible alternatives for temporary accommodation sites in this study were 13 different urban public spaces. The pairwise comparison of criteria based on the aim and pairwise comparison of alternative temporary accommodation options based on each criterion was carried out by experts and using intuitionistic fuzzy sets. Finally, the IF-AHP process was used to determine the priority of each alternative.https://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_5601_b64d8d2785b33249bd098c8720748c57.pdfUniversity of Sistan and BaluchestanIranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems1735-065417620201201Generalized convex combination of implications on bounded lattices7591560210.22111/ijfs.2020.5602ENM.

ChinaJournal Article20200902In a construction project, there are many factors that affect the project quality, such as people, materials, machinery, environment, etc. Among them, people have the greatest influence on the project quality, whether people participate directly or indirectly. This paper mainly evaluates human factors in the process of construction project management, such as workers’ proficiency, workers’ safety awareness, technical workers’ quality, and workers’ emergency capacity, with the purpose of helping China’s construction project to proceed smoothly. In this manuscript, a multi-attribute group decision-making (MAGDM) technique based on Pythagorean interval 2-tuple linguistic numbers (PI2TLNs) and VIKOR method is proposed to evaluate human factors in construction projects. PI2TLNs are used to represent performance assessments of decision makers. Relying on Pythagorean interval 2-tuple linguistic weighted averaging (PI2TLWA)/Pythagorean interval 2-tuple linguistic weighted geometric (PI2TLWG) operator, the evaluation information given by experts is fused into a group decision matrix. Combined with the essential VIKOR method, PI2TLN-VIKOR’ framework is established. The effectiveness of this method is verified by an example, and compared with two algorithms and PI2TLN-TODIM method.https://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_5603_5f538a86e5251f03c1b664777343e551.pdfUniversity of Sistan and BaluchestanIranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems1735-065417620201201Complex fuzzy ordered weighted distance measures107114560410.22111/ijfs.2020.5604ENS.DaiSchool of Electronics and Information Engineering, Taizhou University, Taizhou 318000, ChinaJournal Article20200902In this paper, we introduce the complex fuzzy ordered weighted distance (CFOWD) measure. It is a new measure that uses the main characteristics of the the ordered<br />weighted averaging (OWA) operator and uncertain information represented as complex fuzzy values. This measure includes a wide range of distance measures<br />such as the complex fuzzy maximum distance, the complex fuzzy minimum distance, the normalized complex fuzzy distance (NCFD), the complex fuzzy ordered weighted Hamming distance (CFOWHD), complex fuzzy ordered weighted Euclidean distance (CFOWED), complex fuzzy ordered weighted geometric<br />distance (CFOWGD), the normalized complex fuzzy Hamming distance (NCFHD) and the normalized complex fuzzy Euclidean distance (NCFED).<br />We study some of its main properties.

While one can find numerous studies that consider a crisp estimation of $S^{T}_{pk}$ to evaluate and test the overall process yield, the recorded measurements of product quality characteristics are not always reported precisely. This paper presents a new fuzzy-based method to assess the overall process yield in the presence of a specified degree of ambiguity for the sample data. After finding a fuzzy estimator of $S^{T}_{pk}$ based on Buckley's approach, a new fuzzy three-decision testing rule is proposed to evaluate process performance based on critical values and fuzzy $p$-values. Subsequently, this work extends the application of the proposed method to the class of correlated characteristics by adopting the principal component analysis technique. The introduced fuzzy testing procedure includes the existing customary binary-decision testing rule as a spacial case. In addition, comparative studies are conducted to display the benefits of the proposed rule. Finally, two industrial examples are given for independent and correlated characteristics to guide the practitioners.https://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_5605_a4a8540373e747509632f9f3fc3f1560.pdfUniversity of Sistan and BaluchestanIranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems1735-065417620201201Redundancy of mset topologies133137560610.22111/ijfs.2020.5606ENL.WangSchool of Mathematics, Mudanjiang Normal University, Mudanjiang, 157011 Heilongjiang, P.R.

It is proved that Bosbach states coincide with Riecan states on bounded implication basic algebras.<br /> Accordingly, the relations between Bosbach states and state-morphisms are discussed.

Then, it is proved that one-to-one correspondence is available between the set of all IS-filters and IS-congruence relations on implication basic algebras.<br />Finally, the new notion of generalized state maps from an implication basic algebra IB<sub>1</sub> to an arbitrary implication basic algebra IB<sub>2</sub> is defined and generalized state-morphisms and generalized internal states as two types of individual generalized state maps are introduced. This confirmed that the generalized internal states are a generalization of internal states, and the generalized state-morphisms are a generalization of state-morphisms on implication basic algebras.

Influence of multi variation factors results in decrease of labour productivity in construction field. Still we are dependent on traditional technique comprises with reference published data or on the experience of estimators so as to estimate the construction labour productivity. The objective of this research is to recognize and map the association between identified factors affecting the construction labour productivity and individual productive rates through a systematic engineering model. This process comprises with calculation of productivity, collection of productivity information and using that information for designing construction model. Also, it intends to build up an optimized probabilistic model for construction industry. Initially, the raw data for instance labour cost, capital cost, and energy consumption has been considered as input so as to compute objective function and total productive factor. The membership function is developed and employed in fuzzy optimization algorithm to optimize the productivity rate in construction. The results through anticipated model prove to be more effective model with reasonable generalization capabilities compared to existing traditional work. Furthermore, this paper provides an insight of probabilistic model comprising internal in addition to external variable factors such as supervision, work rules, government rules and public labour unions.https://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_5611_d3bcacf78ae7f3cd3f606ebfd7f82c90.pdfUniversity of Sistan and BaluchestanIranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems1735-065417620201201Persian-translation 17-6 December 2020205218561210.22111/ijfs.2020.5612ENJournal Article20200902https://ijfs.usb.ac.ir/article_5612_d2697a5d7343777d088a9cf3a9a32637.pdf
