There is presented probabilistic von Neumann-Morgenstern type approach to engineering design. Further generalization of the utility theory, using pseudo-analysis, first based on possibility theory, and second, as a common generalization through hybridization of the both preceding approaches are given. In modeling uncertainty in engineering design it is very useful the fuzzy system approach, which involves further real operations as aggregation functions.
