This thesis examines the use of fuzzy set theory and the analytic hierarchy process in decision making. It begins by reviewing the insight of psychologists, social scientists and computer scientists to the decision making process. The Operations Research- Systems Analysis approach is discussed followed by a presentation of the basis of fuzzy set theory and the analytic hierarchy process. Two applications of these methods are presented. The first uses fuzzy sets and a little of the analytic hierarchy process to solve an hypothetical decision problem for the commanding officer of a naval task force. The second applies the latter technique and estimated data to the problem of choosing the best alternative to provide quality air service to Mexico City.
