Despite various approaches that exist in software risk management, software projects have still some difficulties in achieving software engineering objectives. Moreover, managing software development becomes more difficult when the complexity and size of projects are increased. One of the newest approaches for risk management in software engineering is to use Fuzzy Set theory. This paper provides an overview of literature over fuzzy set theory applications in software project. In the literature, several works that incorporated software project risk management and classification, Fuzzy Sets, Analytical Hierarchical Process and Fault Tree are reviewed. After reviewing the process, the strengths and weaknesses of the different approaches are compared and contrasted, and finally some challenges in future are presented.



Keywords: Software Engineering, Risk Evaluation, Fuzzy Set Theory, Fault Tree, Analytical Hierarchical Process.
