NAIDOO, T.; WALKER, A.; BRIGHT, G.  and  DAVRAJH, S.. Fuzzy logic control for varied inspection. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.4, pp.141-154. ISSN 2224-7890.

Varied inspection is an on-line dynamic inspection method in which the amount of inspection performed fluctuates, based on production needs. A two-level control architecture of fuzzy controllers was used to perform varied inspection. The research was the application of varied inspection into three manufacturing subsystems: transfer lines, assembly, and disassembly. The results from each simulation showed that varied inspection could be used to meet production cycle aims while reducing manufacturing lead time. Varied inspection was compared with 100 per cent inspection to determine the significance of varied inspection compared with traditional quality control methods.
