  • The paper builds upon and extends a previous work of the authors. It presents a methodology allowing individuals or organizations to compare the capacity of construction firms using a fuzzy logic expert system model. The paper briefly discusses the concept of fuzzy logic and the task of choosing an appropriate family of parametric membership functions by which to define capacity. The extended methodology is an alternative to a previously developed multiple attribute analytical hierarchical procedure that was developed to enable general contractors to rate the capacity of minority and small/disadvantaged business subcontractors. The model provides a means by which general contractors, private owners, or public agencies can rank competing construction organizations on matters other than the bid price for the work.
