Fuzzy Constraint Satisfaction Problem (FCSP) offers flexible modelling and solving of many real world problems such as scheduling and resource allocation. In this paper, we focus on Distributed Fuzzy Constraint Satisfaction problems (DisFCSP) where fuzzy constraints and variables of the problems are distributed among a set of collaborative agents. We propose two approaches to solve these problems: An iterative method and an adaptation of the Asynchronous Distributed constraint OPTimization algorithm (ADOPT) for solving DisFCSP. We also present experiments on the performance comparison of the two approaches.
