A reduct is a subset of attributes that are jointly sufficient and individually necessary for preserving a particular property of a given information system. The existing reduct approaches under soft set theory are still based on Boolean-valued information system. However, in the real applications, the data usually contain non-Boolean valued. In this paper, an alternative approach for attribute reduction in multi-valued information system under soft set theory is presented. Based on the notion of multi-soft sets and AND operation, attribute reduction can be defined. It is shown that the reducts obtained are equivalent with Pawlak’s rough reduction.
