Knowledge based systems need to deal with aggregation and fusion of data with uncertainty. To use many sources of information in numerical forms for the purpose of decision or conclusion, systems suppose to have tools able to represent the knowledge in a mathematical form. One of the solutions is to use fuzzy logic operators. We present in this article an improvement of the triple Π operator introduced by Yager and Rybalov, which is called * mean* 3Π. Whereas triple Π is an operator completely reinforced, the presented operator is a mean operator, which makes it more robust to noise.
