Abstract

This paper discusses the design of Fuzzy Petri Net in the context of fuzzy relational equations. The High Level Fuzzy Petri Nets proposed earlier to represent fuzzy production rules, is described as a modeling tool in the more general setting of relational equations. The connection of the high level net to its correspondent detailed models is approached. The relational equations problems and their solutions are reviewed, as a background to the work developed here. The representation of direct and dual relational equations is described. A suggestion to use the method to solve relational equations in the development of a backward reasoning algorithm for fuzzy production rules is presented.
