<p>As we know, there are some approaches to tackle uncertainty in mathematical programming amongst with stochastic programming, robust optimization, and fuzzy mathematical programming. To the best of my knowledge, SP is used when there are enough data to estimate the probability distribution function, RO is used when we just know the interval that data varies (continuous form), and FMP is used when data are vague, ambiguous, or when data are not sufficient to estimate PDF of data.</p>
<p>There are a lot of problem in operations management in which there is no historical data, such supply chain network design, location of warehouses and so on. In this situation, it seems more appropriate to use FMP while in most prestigious journals such as Management science, Operations Research, etc, SP and RO are more acceptable while these approaches increase the complexity of model and in some cases make them nonlinear.</p>
<p>Can anyone tell me why SP and RO are more desirable to model uncertainty in these journals and North of America?</p>
