Automated Quality Control in Sound Speaker Manufacturing
We describe in this chapter the application of a hybrid neuro-fuzzy-fractal approach to the problem of automated quality control in sound speaker manufacturing. Traditional quality control has been done by manually checking the quality of sound after production. This manual checking of the speakers is time consuming and occasionally was the cause of error in quality evaluation. For this reason, we developed an intelligent system for automated quality control in sound speaker manufacturing. The intelligent system has a fuzzy rule base containing the knowledge of human experts in quality control. The parameters of the fuzzy system are tuned by applying the ANFIS methodology using, as training data, a real time series of measured sounds as given by good sound speakers. We also use the fractal dimension to measure the complexity of the sound signal. The intelligent system has been tested in a real plant with very good simulation and experimental results.
