Construction of generalized conclusions by means of linear and nonlinear aggregation methods

The main approaches for the formation of generalized conclusions about operation quality of complex hierarchical network systems are analyzed.  Advantages and drawbacks of the ``weakest'' element method and a weighted linear aggregation method are determined.  Nonlinear aggregation method is proposed for evaluating the quality of the system, which consists of elements of the same priority.  Hybrid approaches to form generalized conclusions are developed based on the main aggregation methods.  It is shown that they allow us to obtain more reliable generalized conclusions.
