The minimization of automaton is important to reduce space and computational time. Reduction in number of states and transitions leads to equivalent automaton with less number of states and transitions. In this paper, state minimization of General Finite Fuzzy Automata (GFFA) is discussed. To obtain minimal equivalent GFFA we have removed redundant states and transitions using substitution property (SP) partition and quotient machine. The algorithm to find membership values of states of the GFFA is described and algorithm to associate states with quotient machine to obtain minimal machine with less number of states is discussed.
