Abstract: Firstly, this paper presents fuzzy logic based approaches for building a tool for measuring e-readiness of a country. This paper proposes fuzzy logic for realising the measuring tool, as fuzzy logic allows processing of heterogeneous indicators and imprecise values assigned for them. The tool is constructed by using one or more fuzzy logic based inference engines. Secondly, due to the problems in constructing pure fuzzy logic based inference engines, this paper also proposes some hybrid techniques for performance improvement; the hybrid techniques combines fuzzy logic with array-based logic.

Keywords: fuzzy logic; array-based logic; hybrid inference systems; e-readiness; e-government; electronic government; performance improvement.
