A QUALITATIVE APPROACH IN TERMS OF FUZZY LOGIC RELATED TO THE EXCELLENCE ACHIEVING WITHIN MANAGERIAL PROCESS OF PERSONNEL SELECTION  
Sîrb L. Dragolea L.

Abstract: The present article aims to design and develop a qualitative methodology using fuzzy logic in order to be a real tool for the managerial decisional factor in solving the multicriteria decisional problems related to the proper selection of the personnel and to the achievement of excellence in this field within a company. In our days, the economical environment characterized by globalization and by a continuous change, offers many times to the decisional factors some situations which are surrounded by uncertainty and ambiguity, fact that in its turn leads to a subjectivism of their reasoning, which is in fact a feature of the abstract thinking of human being itself. This aspects are manifesting also in the field of personnel selection, where the evaluations related to this process are often subjectives, materialized through qualitative linguistic values. In this context, using the proposed fuzzy methodology, embedded in a fuzzy software tool developed in the Java programming language, can offer significantly opportunities and chances to achieve the excellence in this field of research, because the future and performance of any organization depend by the human resources that are working within it.       

Key words:
fuzzy logic, decisional process, personnel, Java programming language.  

Introduction

The companies in the contemporary period are facing with more and more challenges in the perspective to survive and progress, due to changing environment, globalization, technological changes and increased competitiveness of market. The decisional problems such as the selection of personnel and others like this one represent primordial aspects that properly managed can contribute in ensuring the perenniality of organizations in an effective and efficient manner, in the conditions of a high uncertainty of external environment doubled by the subjectivity of reasoning of the decisional factors from organization. Moreover, selecting the right person for the right place becomes a much more sophisticated process since that the internal changes in organizations have a direct impact on the methods for selecting human resources, whose complexity grows in accordance with organizational career management systems, of which the selection is an integral part. Therefore, the innovative selection systems which seeks to identify persons with the ability to learn and to adapt to new situations under the conditions of an internal and external environment of the company surrounded by uncertainty and risk, can provide to firm an important competitive advantage in fight with the competition.

Summary

Through this paper I proposed myself to develop an effective and a powerful tool under the spectrum of fuzzy logic in order to model the uncertainty and subjectivity which surrounding the human decision factors regarding to the personnel selection and which most often are manifesting by linguistic expressions specifics to human factor reasoning. Choosing the right man for the right place, into a company that activates in an increasingly competitive environment and subjected to globalization, represents the key towards the achieving of organization
s overall performance and towards survival and continuity of its activities in conditions of performance and excellence. The methodology used in selecting the most suitable human resource, described in chapter 3, represents an extremely effective and efficient tool in the perspective of ensuring of some high quality decisions regarding the personnel selection and his subsequent hiring on any organizational position targeted. This decisions are among the most important ones wihin an entity, because by their quality depend all the related economical, social or ecological benefits on long term and also the perenniality of organization after all, in the increasingly complex and changing economic reality of our contemporary period.    
The proposed methodology can be also successfully applied in other areas of decisional process surrounded by uncertainty and ambiguity, given the circumstances and the degree of its applicability and compatibility with the different situations concerned. Moreover, in this context, in which the decisional factors reasoning often tends to be a subjective one, materialized through qualitative linguistic assessments, fact revealed by the abstract thinking itself of human being, the use of fuzzy methodology proposed in this article really proves its utility, even more so as its algorithm steps are implemented and compiled within an informatical software tool developed in Java programming language, in order to provide to decisional factors more reliable, pertinent and relevant results, in an accurate and timely manner.

PODEJŚCIE JAKOŚCIOWE W WARUNKACH LOGIKI ROZMYTEJ W RELACJI DO OSIĄGNIĘCIA DOSKONAŁOŚCI W KIEROWNICZYM PROCESIE WYBORU PERSONELU

Streszczenie: Celem niniejszego artykułu jest zaprojektowanie i opracowanie metodologii, wykorzystującej logikę rozmytą, w celu utworzenia prawdziwego narzędzia czynnika decyzyjnego w rozwiązywaniu wielokryterialnych problemów decyzyjnych związanych z właściwym wyborem personelu. W dzisiejszych czasach, środowisko rynkowe charakteryzuje się globalizacją i ciągłymi zmianiami, powodując bardzo często konieczność podejmowania decyzji w sytuacjach niepewnych i wieloznacznych, co z kolei prowadzi do zjawiska subiektywności przy ich podejmowaniu, co w rzeczywistości jest cechą abstrakcyjnego rozumowania u człowieka. Te aspekty bardzo często występują w zakresue doboru personelu, gdzie oceny związane z tym procesem, bardzo często mają charakter subiektywny, uwidacznianie przez jakościowe wartości językowe. W tym kontekście, stosując rozmytą metodologię, istniejące narzędzia, opracowane w języku programowania Java, oferują znaczące korzyści i szanse na osiągnięcie doskonałości w tej dziedzinie badań, ponieważ przyszłość i efektywność każdej organizacji uzależnione jest od zasobów ludzkich które w niej pracują.
