A case-based reasoning system for determining what colorants to use for producing a specific color of plastic was created. The selection of colorants needs to take many factors into consideration. A technique that involved fuzzy logic was used to compare the quality of the color match for each factor. The system has been in use for two years at a growing number of GE Plastics sites and has shown significant cost savings.
