Fuzzy Hierarchical Decision Modeling

Michael Khader, Ph.D

According to several studies an inordinate number of business decisions fails.  The analytical hierarchical process (AHP) is concerned with decomposing complex decisions into a set of factors and solutions.  However, AHP has difficulties in handling uncertainty in decision information.  This book addresses these deficiencies through developing a hybrid model based on AHP and fuzzy sets and logic.  This model is capable of handling decisions with incomplete information and uncertain decision operating environment.


The objective of this option is to provide students with the skills required to work with, administer and manage telecommunications networks and systems. Graduates of this program will have the technical knowledge to design, implement and procure telecommunications networks and the management skills to maximize the financial returns on these systems. This option prepares the students for such careers as telecommunications manager, network administrator, telecommunications sales representative, e-commerce developer and customer support representative.

The coursework provides the technical background to understand the underlying network architecture, protocols and technology with a special emphasis on case studies and industrial implementations. The benefit/cost analysis of these networks and their impact on the business environment is studied in depth.


Students who transfer to the junior year of the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology program, specializing in Telecommunications Management Technology, are expected to have completed their freshman and sophomore years at a community college or similar institution and received an associate's degree, with a minimum of 64 semester credit hours:

  • Oral and Written Communications
  • College Algebra and Trigonometry
  • Unified Calculus
  • Physical Science
  • Computer Programming
  • Social Science/Humanities/Physical Education
  • Technology
