Relational representation of knowledge makes it possible to perform all the computations and decision making in a uniform relational way by means of special relational compositions called triangle and square products. In this paper some applications in manufacturing related to cost analysis are described. Testing fuzzy relational structures for various relational properties allows us to discover dependencies, hierarchies, similarities, and equivalences of the attributes characterizing
