A Unique Computational Method for Constructing Intervals in Fuzzy Time Series Forecasting


This research article suggests a computational method for constructing fuzzy sets in absence of expert knowledge. This method uses concepts of central tendencies mean and variance. This study gives a solution to the critical issue in designing of fuzzy systems, number of fuzzy sets. Proposed computational method helps in finding intervals and thereby fuzzy sets for fuzzy time series forecasting. Proposed computational method is implemented on the authentic data for the enrolments of University of Alabama, which is considered as benchmark problem in the field of fuzzy time series. The forecasted values are compared with the results of other methods to state its supremacy. Projected computational method along with Gaussian membership function gave promising results over other methods for fuzzy time series for the above said benchmark data.
