In this paper, new generalizations of the probabilistic averaging operator — Associated Fuzzy Probabilistic Averaging (As-PA and As-FPA) and Immediate Probabilistic Fuzzy Ordered Weighted Averaging (As-IP-OWA and As-IP-FOWA) operators are presented in the environment of fuzzy uncertainty. An uncertainty is presented by associated probabilities of a fuzzy measure. Expert’s evaluations as arguments of the aggregation operators are described by a variable, values of which are compatibility levels on the states of nature defined in positive real or triangular fuzzy numbers (TFNs). Two propositions on the As-FPA operator are proved: (1) The As-FPA operator for the fuzzy measure — capacity of order two coincides with the finite Choquet Averaging (CA) Operator; (2) the As-FPA operator coincides with the FPA operator when a probability measure is used in the role of a fuzzy measure. Analogous propositions for the As-IP-FOWA operator are proved. Some propositions on the connection of the As-FPA and As-IP-FOWA operators are also proved. Information measures — Orness and Divergence for the constructed operators are defined. Some propositions on the connections of these parameters with the corresponding parameters of the finite CA Operator are proved. Two illustrative examples on the applicability of the As-FPA and As-IP-FOWA operators are presented: (1) Several variants of the As-FPA and As-IP-FOWA operators are used for comparison of decision-making results for the problems regarding the fiscal policy of a country; (2) The As-FPA operator is used in the Multi-attribute decision-making (MADM) problem of choosing the best version of the students’ project.
