Li and Yu (Fuzzy Sets and Systems 101 (1999) 109) argued that the model of Yang et al. for fuzzy programming (Fuzzy Sets and Systems 41 (1991) 39) is correct only for a specific type of piecewise linear membership function and proposed their model for other type of membership functions. This study generalizes the model of Yang et al. A numerical example indicates that the model of Li and Yu is inapplicable to a fuzzy programming problem that involves more than one membership function, whereas the proposed model gives the optimal solution.
- Fuzzy programming
- Piecewise linear membership functions
- Quasi-concave membership functions
