In this study, a hierarchical decision making structure possessing a decision fusion technique is proposed in order to solve decision making problems efficiently. The proposed structure mainly depends on effects of the decisions made in the lower levels to decisions in the upper levels up to an activation degree. The proposed hierarchical structure is used for detecting the fault degrees for single and multiple fault scenarios artifically generated in a four tank system. The results obtained demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed hierarchical decision making structure.
