Other Details
This paper represents the culmination of two years' collaborative research with colleagues in the Faculty of Business and Management following the provision of targeted research strategy funding from the University. The paper presents a thorough investigation into the suitability of Fuzzy Logic Systems (FLS) for acquisition analysis. Additionally, a new type-2 FLS is developed that facilitates the inclusion of the opinions of multiple experts. The simulation results have demonstrated the reliable ranking of prospective companies. The success of this research has instigated further collaborative research to investigate the optimisation of the supply chain management process.
