This paper proposes an improved model for the application of support vector machine (SVM) to achieve the real-world data classification. Being different from traditional SVM classifiers, the new model takes the thought about fuzzy theory into account. And a fuzzy decision-making function is also built to replace the sign function in the prediction stage of classification process. In the prediction part, the method proposed uses the decision value as the independent variable of fuzzy decision-making function to classify test data set into different classes, but not only the sign of which. This flexible design of decision-making model more approaches to the properties of real-world conditions in which interaction and noise influence exist around the boundary between different clusters. So many misclassifled cases can be modified when these sets are considered as fuzzy ones. In addition, a boundary offset is also introduced to modify the excursion produced by the imbalance of real-world dataset. Then an improved and more robust performance will be presented by using this adjustable fuzzy decision-making SVM model in simulations.
