Abstract

In this paper, the finitely many constraints of a fuzzy relation
inequalities problem are studied and the linear objective function on the region
defined by a fuzzy max-average operator is optimized. A new simplification
technique which accelerates the resolution of the problem by removing the
components having no effect on the solution process is given together with an
algorithm and a numerical example to illustrate the steps of the problem
resolution process.
