Soft computing is a combination of methods that complement each other when dealing with ambiguous real life decision systems. Rough Set Theory (RST) is a technique used in soft computing that enhances the idea of classical sets to deal with incomplete knowledge and provides a mechanism for concept approximation. It uses reducts to isolate key attributes affecting outcomes in decision systems. The paper summarizes two algorithms for reduct calculation. Moreover, to automate the application of RST, different software packages are available. The paper provides a survey of packages that are most frequently used to perform data analysis based on Rough Sets. For benefit of researchers, a comparison of based on functionalities of those software is also provided.
