The currently-in-use definition of aggregation function is analyzed in this paper, noting that the introduced variability in the dimension of information does not avoid some obvious dysfunctions. In particular, a potential abuse of the mathematical formalism underlies such a definition, which could lead to solve a complex concept by means of a formal mathematical expression. In this paper we propose an alternative definition making emphasis on the practical implementation of aggregation functions, taking into account the objectives and limitations observed in the application of aggregation functions within the fuzzy context.
