In this paper, two new uncertainty modeling concepts, namely strait soft set and strait rough set, between the structures of rough sets and soft sets, which will bring new perspectives to both theoretical and practical aspects, are presented. A reduction method of alternatives is given using strait soft sets. Another convenience arising from the structure of strait soft sets is that they allow the parameters to be combined. Thus, the fusion of parameters is defined and its use in soft set operations is demonstrated. Strait rough sets naturally contain the characteristics of the rough sets and also allow the parameters to be characterized. The strait soft set and strait rough set are supported by many examples and comparisons. In addition, a new decision-making approach based on the strait soft set and strait rough set is proposed and then followed by real-life applications to illustrate the computational processes.
