removeOutput

Remove output variable from fuzzy inference system

Syntax

fisOut = removeOutput(fisIn,outputName)

Description

example

fisOut = removeOutput(fisIn,outputName) removes the output variable with the name outputName from fuzzy inference system fisIn and returns the resulting fuzzy system in fisOut.

Examples

Input Arguments

collapse all

Fuzzy inference system, specified as a mamfis or sugfis object.

Output variable name, specified as a string or character vector.

Output Arguments

collapse all

Fuzzy inference system, returned as a mamfis or sugfis object. fisOut has the same properties as fisIn except:

  • The input variable with the specified name is removed.

  • The specified input variable is removed from any fuzzy rules. If a rule has only the specified input variable in its antecedent, then the entire rule is removed. If a rule has more than one input variable in its antecedent, then the specified input variable is removed from the antecedent.
