The schemes of inference, introduced in Sec.2, are used in Sec.3 to discuss the special case of an expert system oriented towards control of an industrial process consisting of a steam engine and a boiler. We consider here only max-min fuzzy equations and α-fuzzy equations (cfr. Ch.6) defined on finite sets.
