This paper presents an extension of the fuzzy pay-off method for real
option valuation using interval-valued fuzzy numbers. To account for a
higher level of imprecision that can be present in many applications, we
propose to use triangular upper and lower membership functions as the
basis of real option analysis. In the paper, analytical formulas are
derived for the triangular case by calculating the possibilistic mean of
truncated interval-valued triangular fuzzy numbers. A numerical example
of a cash-flow analysis is presented to illustrate the use of the
proposed approach.
