Fuzzy logic for expert system

I'm new to fuzzy logic, so this question may seem somewhat naive. I'm
working on an expert system that uses several different approaches to solve
a problem. The results of each of the solution techniques is in the form
of a statistical distribution (not necessarily normal). We have different
levels of confidence in each of the solution techniques, and, therefore, a
different confidence associated with each of the results (distributions).
I'd like to be able to combine each of these distributions in some way and
compute an overall confidence in the "combined" results. Can fuzzy logic
help me with this?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Sincerely,
