The focus of this paper is on handling non-monotone information in the modelling process of a single-input target monotone system. On one hand, the monotonicity property is a piece of useful prior (or additional) information which can be exploited for modelling of a monotone target system. On the other hand, it is difficult to model a monotone system if the available information is not monotonically-ordered. In this paper, an interval-based method for analysing non-monotonically ordered information is proposed. The applicability of the proposed method to handling a non-monotone function, a non-monotone data set, and an incomplete and/or non-monotone fuzzy rule base is presented. The upper and lower bounds of the interval are firstly defined. The region governed by the interval is explained as a overage measure. The coverage size represents uncertainty pertaining to the available information. The proposed approach constitutes a new method to transform non-monotonic information to interval-valued monotone system. The proposed interval-based method to handle an incomplete and/or non-monotone fuzzy rule base constitutes a new fuzzy reasoning approach.
