Has this something to do with fuzzy logic?
Just wondering.
Here are a few piecewise linear constructors (they were intended for
membership functions, that's what the MF stands for):

GammaShapedMF[x_, a_, b_] :=
    Which[x<=a, 0, a <x< b, 1+(x-b)/(b-a),x>=b, 1]
LShapedMF[x_, a_, b_] :=
    Which[x<=a, 1, a<x<b, 1-(x-a)/(b-a), x>=b, 0]
PiShapedMF[x_, a_, c1_, c2_, b_] :=
    Min[GammaShapedMF[x, a, c1], LShapedMF[x, c2, b]]
DeltaShapedMF[x_, a_, c_, b_] :=
    Min[GammaShapedMF[x, a, c], LShapedMF[x, c, b]]

Once you defined your triangular functions by means of a Which statement,


and once you chose the algebraic multiplication as the operator that
multiplies them together, I suppose that by plotting the function


you'll find a cute pyramid. Here's a plot with a color function I like

    LimitedGrayLevel[x_, maxBk_:0.3, maxWh_:0.90] :=
        GrayLevel[maxBk + x(maxWh - maxBk)]
    FuzzyGray[x_] := LimitedGrayLevel[1 - x, 0, .9]

    Plot3D[ f[x,y], {x,0,8}, {y,0,8},
        PlotPoints->25, BoxRatios->{1,1,1},
        ColorFunction->FuzzyGray, PlotRange->All ]

Sigmoidal and gaussian MF make better plots, though : )
