Steam generator system is known as the bridge between the primary and secondary systems for phase changes from water into steam. The aim of this paper is to identify the best input that influence the steam generator system in the process of changing from water to steam, to ensure the process is efficient. The method consists of the transformation method of fuzzy arithmetic which is to compute the measure of influence for each parameter in the model system. The result is then verified against simulation and analysis.
