Fuzzy cognitive maps (FCM) are useful tools for exploring the impacts of di1erent input states on fuzzy dynamical systems. The development of a FCM requires the speci4cation of the signs and magnitudes of the relevant causal relationships by one or more experts based on subjective estimates of the causal relationships. However, while it is often relatively easy to determine the sign of the causal relationship, determination of the magnitude is often problematic, and so in many cases only the… CONTINUE READING
