Intelligent Manufacturing of Television Sets
We describe in this chapter an intelligent system for controlling the electrical tuning process during the manufacturing of television sets. The electrical tuning problem consists in controlling the imaging system of the television set to meet production quality requirements. Traditionally, this tuning process has been performed by human operators by manually adjusting the imaging system in the television set. In our approach, we use fuzzy logic to automate the tuning process. We use a fuzzy system for controlling the voltage, current, and the time during the tuning process, so that the best possible quality of image is achieved. We also use a specific genetic algorithm for optimizing the parameters and number of rules of the fuzzy system. We have implemented this intelligent system for control in the MATLAB programming language with good simulation results. We compared the fuzzy-genetic approach with other methods for control with very good results. The intelligent system was also tested in a real production plant for several months with very good results.
