The ongoing study has been vehemently allocated to propound an ameliorated α-weighted generalized approximation of an arbitrary fuzzy number. This method sets out to lessen the distance between the original fuzzy set and its approximation. In an effort to elaborate the study, formulas are designed for computing the ameliorated approximation by using a multitude of examples. The numerical samples will be exemplified to illuminate the improvement of the nearest triangular approximation (Abbasbandy et al., Triangular approximation of fuzzy numbers using α-weighted valuations, Soft Computing, 2019). A variety of features of the ameliorated approximation are then proved.

1. Introduction

Fuzzy numbers have matured in many disciplines dealing with vagueness and imperfect information in decision-making, expert systems, and determining other related areas.

The importance of a fuzzy number has been recognized considering the uppermost representation of information is numeric. Since its inception, a large circle of researchers has focused on refinements of computing to the nearest interval of triangular, trapezoidal, or parametric approximation of a fuzzy number. New developments, to the extent that they are relevant to this field, have been served very fast. Defuzzification methods have been extensively surveyed and applied in areas of applications such as fuzzy expert systems. The noteworthy idea of defuzzification is expected to encapsulate a fuzzy number to get a typical value from a given fuzzy set. The end goal is to deliver a correspondence from the set of all fuzzy quantities into a set of crisp values. Recently, a wide range of defuzzification procedures has been proposed in the literature that should facilitate the study [1]. Detyniecki and Yager have studied the ranking fuzzy numbers using α-weighted valuations in [2]. In [3], the nearest interval approximation of a fuzzy number has been discussed by Grzegorzewski. A novel approach of defuzzification is presented by Ma et al. [4]. Yeger and Filev [5, 6] have studied the ranking fuzzy numbers using valuations and instantiation of possibility distributions.

Carlsson et al. announced an interval-valued possibilistic mean [7], and Chanas explicated an interval approximation of a fuzzy number [8]. Abbasbandy and Asady featured a procedure of the nearest trapezoidal fuzzy number to a general fuzzy number [9]. In addition, Delgado et al. [1] and Abbasbandy et al. [10] circulated symmetrical and nonsymmetrical trapezoidal representation of fuzzy numbers and triangular approximations of fuzzy numbers. The simple and more assessment method applied in these works needs to be established as a moderation of a distance between an arbitrary fuzzy number and its nearest approximation.

The previously mentioned authors examined the advanced generalized approximation of fuzzy quantities assumed by introducing a metric on the set of fuzzy numbers in a minimization process. The expected result was the computation of the core of the triangular fuzzy quantity. To conduct the study, the researcher goes through the following sections. In Section 2, we are going to expound a number of notions of fuzzy numbers and announce a weighted distance between fuzzy numbers and the refined proposed approximation method in [10]. In Section 3, the weighted triangular approximation of a fuzzy number will be investigated in terms of weighted distance to reach its general calculating formula. It is advantageous and absolutely necessary to go through a number of reasonable properties in Section 4. Examples are served in Section 5. Section 6 comprises a conclusion. Numerous references are included in the final section.

2. Preliminaries

The vital definitions of a fuzzy number [10] have been created as follows:

Definition 1. Let be the set of whole real numbers. A fuzzy number is a fuzzy set such as that satisfies(1) is upper semicontinuous(2) outside various interval (3)There are real numbers such that then(a) escalates on (b) descend on(c),

Definition 2. A crucial sample of a fuzzy quantity is the generalized fuzzy quantity centered at with widths and .The parametric form of the (1) is and . If the triangular fuzzy number in is contributed by an ordered triple in particular , then .

2.1. Assessment Procedure

In this section, we provide the particular valuation methods. It is often too appropriate to deal with the problem of comparison of fuzzy numbers associating with a fuzzy number some representative value, . There is a conspicuous case in point to compare the fuzzy subsets in terms of these single representative values.

Equation (2) is elicited. A popularized classification for a set of assessment relations,where is a mapping from to . In the increasing family, we take it to the consideration , by . Two satisfying specific cases are about to be observed (the extremes):(i)For , we observe equal to . Thereupon, the valuation is given by the original Equation (2).(ii)If , the Dirac relation is attained. As a result, the valuation will bewhich is categorized in place of the average of the core. Conforming to our investigation, it is highly desirable to pay extra attention to the higher α-level sets as we have the larger . In the limiting case, when approaches infinity, we just use (the core of ). The decreasing family which is the complementary case of the increasing family is shown as follows:

Here, anew, the authors have two favorite instances (the extremity):(i)For , the authors obtain equal to . The estimate expressed in Equation (2) will be promised.(ii)For , we obtain the Dirac function. This implies that the valuation is expressed as follows:which is the average of the support. In the decreasing family, for , we are placing more emphasis on the lower α-level sets. The larger has more emphasis given to the lower cut sets.

The best generalized fuzzy quantities to in [10] can be shown as follows:

Such that .

3. The Best Generalized Fuzzy Number

We shall now propose the triangular approximation of a fuzzy number by the minimization technique, and we will use a metric to calculate the core of the generalized fuzzy quantity . Taking as a general fuzzy number, this paper is trying to probe the nearest generalized fuzzy quantity:

Initially, we compute the core of . This process can be extended with respect to the following minimization technique:

With (3) and parametric form of as , subsequent form is provided as follows:

To accomplish the core of , the partial derivative will be shown as follows:
