Fuzzy classification systems differ from fuzzy controllers in the form of their outputs. For classification problems a decision between a finite number of discrete classes has to be made, whereas in fuzzy control the output domain is usually continuous, i.e.\ a real interval. In this paper we consider fuzzy classification systems using the max-min inference scheme and classifying an unknown datum on the basis of maximum matching, i.e.\ assigning it to the class appearing in the consequent of the rule whose premise fits best. We basically show that this inference scheme locally takes only two attributes (variables) into account for the classification decision.
