Sir,

My name is Prakhar Vaish. I am a qualified
Electrical Engineer from Delhi College of
Engineering,Delhi, India now working in a software
MNC. I have had great interest in the Fuzzy System
during my graduate studies and wanted to utilize fuzzy
theory into areas different from its traditional
fields of application, such as Control Systems.

In my quest to understand fuzzy system to greater
depth and apply the same in different scenarios. I
have written a white paper on the application of
"FUZZY SET DECOMPOSITION ALGORITHM TO PLANT LAYOUT"
and would like to publish it.

I would be highly oblidged if you could kindly
guide me in this regard. I am sending you the abstract
of the same for your review.

Cordially,
Prakhar Vaish

FUZZY SET DECOMPOSITION ALGORITHM APPLIED TO PLANT
LAYOUT

Abstract:

In this paper a novel way of applying the concept of
Fuzzy Logic Plant Layout and design has been
discussed. This algorithm uses the reasoning of Fuzzy
set and judicially manipulates the mass transfer for
one machine to another as the basis for deciding the
appropriate position of the machine. As a thumb rule
it takes that the machine from which mass flow
(from/to) to other machines is maximum should be
placed in a position, which is easily approachable
from all associated machines i.e., should be placed in
the center. Also if a machine has no mass flow
directly from/to another machine, still both may have
an indirect mass transfer via other machines.

One of the main results is that a logical
reasoning for optimum Plant Layout is obtained and
secondly, it does not require numerous trials and
errors on which conventional algorithm largely
depends. Moreover the method can also be applied to
multi-machine (more than ten machines) system for
which finding an optimum placement usually is a
tedious job.
