Modelling of palm oil production using fuzzy expert system
The application of fuzzy logic expert system in the production process control and optimisation have been widely used since Mamdani and Assilian (1975) developed fuzzy inference fuzzy logic controller model for a steam engine. Mamdani fuzzy logic expert system has been applied in the area of production optimisation and control in the food processing industries as well as other industries. For example, application of fuzzy expert control for hydraulic forging machine (Lee & Kopp, 2001) and twin extruder machine (Lee, Hong, Han, Kang, & Kwon, 2002). Peres, Guerra, Alique and Ros (1999) also developed fuzzy control model for milling process optimisation and Vagelatos, Rigatos, and Tzafestas (2001) developed fuzzy control model for optimising the injection molding process. Other applications include optimization of power distribution system operations that was developed by Sarfi and Solo (2002), food frying process (Rywotycki, 2003) and fuzzy expert control for oil and gas supplies (Neuroth, McConnell, Stronach, & Vamplew, 2000). Despite the wide application of fuzzy expert system, the technique has yet to be applied in the crude palm oil production.
