In this paper, the concept and type of posynomial fuzzy relation geometric programming is introduced, some basic theories of posynomial fuzzy relation geometric programming is presented, and then a solution procedure is expatiated to solving such a programming based on structure of feasible region. And finally, two practical examples are given for illustration purpose.
