interval-valued fuzzy number, confidence interval, nonlinear programming

The purpose of this study is to develop a crisp nonlinear method of programming to address production inventory problems based on both production inventory and conditions. In addition, we use a statistical confidence interval to derive level (1-β, 1-α) interval-valued fuzzy numbers, in order to solve problems in nonlinear programming for production inventory in the fuzzy sense.
