In spite of their successes in various systems, researchers have pointed out certain drawbacks [4,5] in the mechanism, which motivates the introduction of Similarity-based Approximate Reasoning (SAR) mechanism as proposed in [4-7].

In general, fuzzy systems are suitable for uncertain or approximate reasoning, especially for the system with a mathematical model that is difficult to derive.
In a narrow sense, fuzzy logic is a logical system that aims at a formalization of approximate reasoning. As such, it is rooted in multivalued logic, but its agenda is quite different from that of traditional multivalued logical systems, e.g., Lukasiewicz's logic.
