Application of knowledge-based systems

  • Linda S. Young

Abstract

In the baking industry the use of computers and their systems has until recently been confined to the in-line control mechanisms built into equipment and for the administrative functioning of the bakery. The use of PLC (programmable logic cards) to ensure that the equipment performs as required is widespread. For example PLCs are used in mixing machines to ensure that the ingredients are mixed at the correct speed for the requisite time period or, in the case of ovens, that each zone has the desired temperature and humidity profile. There is much software, for example spreadsheets, word processing and database packages, to assist the baker, large or small to perform the business function and to ensure the smooth running of materials requisition, stock control, accounting, production scheduling and communicating with the customer.
