DM: New version of FUZZYMANAGER available

We have just released the second public version of the 
FUZZYMANAGER software for Microsoft Windows (95/98/NT) 
named, appropriately enough, FUZZYMANAGER 1.0.1.  This was 
developed by the Software Metrics Research Laboratory (SMRL) 
and consists of two modules called FULSOME (Fuzzy Logic for 
Software Metrics) and CLUESOME (Cluster Extraction for Software 
Metrics).  The names reflect the original application area of the 
software rather than any limitations or restrictions.     

This second version implements a much faster inference process 
and corrects various bugs reported by users and found by 
ourselves. A few small additional features have been added as well, 
but the core functionality is the same as version 1.0.0.  

The software is intended to be very easy to use and to help users 
understand how their fuzzy logic systems operate.  As such it 
guides the user through the steps of creating fuzzy systems, has a 
very graphic-oriented interface to explain the inference process, 
and has a variety of options for experimenting.  We hope that it will 
be useful to anyone who wants a relatively simple interface to fuzzy 
logic systems and fuzzy clustering.  We think that it has some 
promise for teaching purposes as well.  

The FULSOME software allows for data editing, membership 
function creation and editing, rule creation and editing, and 
inference with a reasonable variety of t-norms, t-conorms, 
defuzzication methods, and system options.    

CLUESOME, which is still experimental, uses the same file 
formats to extract membership functions and/or rules from data 
(and existing membership functions if only rules are desired) based 
on fuzzy-clustering algorithms.  This can, optionally, all be 

accomplished using a wizard interface.  These systems are 
generally adequate as rough drafts for an expert to refine, but 
perform quite well when compared to other techniques.  

The software can be downloaded from the below web page.  

This is part of our new web site which is currently being built up 
from our old site.  Many of the pages are still blank, but the old 
web site is still available.  

We would be very grateful for any feedback (comments, 
compliments, or criticisms) about the software.
