Used factors in second questionnaire were from prioritized factors in first questionnaire. Data was organized by Excel software and 81 rules were obtained .Finally using fuzzy toolbox in Matlab software and applying obtained rules, outputs of factors were calculated and then in some 3D surface plots were depicted.
