We describe optimal decompositions of an n m matrix I into a triangular product I ¼ A / B of an n k matrix A and a k m matrix B. We assume that the matrix entries are elements of a residuated lattice, which leaves binary matrices or matrices which contain numbers from the unit interval [0, 1] as special cases. The entries of I, A, and B represent grades to which objects have attributes, factors apply to objects, and attributes are particular manifestations of factors, respectively. This way,
