A "decomposition" of a method as Cells of the special (minor) Shell and their combination with the main framework leads to the construction of a particular IDSS for practical use, which is based on a specific disciplinary field or a compound as a multidisciplinary approach, such as decision analysis and fuzzy set theory.

3 The proposed generalized Imai solution is uniquely defined on the class B*. It satisfies axioms AI, AI*, A2, A3. Proof. Let (S,d) be an arbitrary element of B" and let u E U(S,d). Because the set S is nonempty and compact, the functions P and L are continuous, so fL(S,d,u) exists. The uniqueness follows from condition C3. If x E fL( S, d, u), y E fL( S, d, u), x :/: y then, there is z E fL(S, d, u) with P( L( z» )-, P( L( x». Contradiction. It is easy to verify that the function fL satisfies the axioms AI", A2 and A3.
