Monotonicity of a Fuzzy Relational Inference (FRI) mechanism has been studied in the literature with implicative form of a rule base where the implication comes from a residuated lattice structure. Here we show monotonicity of an FRI with Yager’s class of fuzzy implications which do not form a residuated lattice structure on [0,1].
