GA-Fuzzy Approaches: Application to Modeling of Manufacturing Process
This chapter presents various techniques using the combination of fuzzy logic and genetic algorithm (GA) to construct model of a physical process including manufacturing process. First, an overview on the fundamentals of fuzzy logic and fuzzy inferences systems toward formulating a rule-based model (called fuzzy rule based model, FRBM) is presented. After that, the working principle of a GA is discussed and later, how GA can be combined with fuzzy logic to design the optimal knowledge base of FRBM of a process is presented. Results of few case studies of modeling various manufacturing processes using GA-fuzzy approaches conducted by the author are presented.
