Registered author(s):

    The Rural Cooperatives Unions (RCUs) play a significant role in the development of the Greek rural sector, but they are facing significant organizing and administrative problems. The use of methods and techniques of the operational research by the RCUs may contribute significantly in making and supporting rational decisions. A Decision Support System (DSS) was developed that can provide very important services in the direction of evaluating the existing RCUs and forecasting their future financial performance. The system uses multicriteria analysis based on actual financial data and applies fundamental principles of fuzzy logic in order to achieve the forecasting of the future performance of the eight RCUs that are located in the region of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace (in North-Eastern Greece).
