Project: Optimisation of a knitting proces using softcomputing.

project duration
01-JAN-99 – 31-JAN-00
The project intends to model and to optimise a knitting process. Therefore an experimental programme has to be carried out, in order to set up a data base. Secondly an off-line optimisation system has to be developed enablint the knitter to determine, for a specified quality, the corresponding yarn quality and machine settings. This implies that in a first instance a model has to be developed that describes the aforementioned paremeters. In a following step the model could be used as an optimisation system for the process. The simulation and optimisation of the process will be researched by means of 'soft computing' techniques, such as neural networks, genetic algorithms.
