This work proposed a set-covering model using the concept of fuzzy set theory todefine "fuzzy covers." The proposed fuzzy set-covering model can be reduced to a nonlinear integer programming problem which is easily solvable with modern software. This model is a nature extension of the classical set-covering model, and is able to handle uncertainty.
