\(\newcommand{\cat}[1]{\mathcal{#1}}\def\Ob{{\mathrm{Ob}}}\Ob(P)\) serves as the set on which the preorder is defined. The functor \(\otimes:\cat{P}\times\cat{P}\to\cat{P}\) induces a function \(\otimes_\Ob:\Ob(\cat{P})\times\Ob(\cat{P})\to\Ob(\cat{P})\). Properties a) and b) in the definition of a monoidal category imply that property b) in the definition of a weak symmetric monoidal preorder holds. The existence of an associator natural isomorphism implies associativity in the weak monoidal preorder. The existence of a swap natural isomorphism guarantees symmetry holds in a weak monoidal preorder. The final property to check is monotonicity. Monotonicity in the weak monoidal preorder follows from the function on Hom-sets induced by \(\otimes\). In particular, if \(f\in\cat{P}(p,q)\) and \(g\in\cat{P}(x,y)\neq\varnothing\), then \(f\otimes_\mathrm{Mor}g\in\cat{P}(p\otimes_\Ob x,q\otimes_\Ob y)\) (in the case of a monoidal preorder, the fact that the product Hom-set is non-empty is exactly what is meant by an inequality holding between the corresponding two elements of the preorder).
