The methods of computing the knowledge incompleteness factor in decision support system

Agnieszka Nowak-Brzezińska, Tomasz Jach

Abstract


The paper consists of the proposition of using the method of incompleteness factors (IF) in order to model the incompleteness of knowledge in decision support systems. The authors are using cluster analysis methods along with the incompleteness factors to reason in systems with incomplete knowledge.

Keywords
