This paper discusses the framework of an expert advisory system designed to provide expert knowledge in the control and management of a sugar mill crystallization stage. The Smart Supervisory Control System (SSCS) is fundamentally a hybrid fuzzy logic based expert system that incorporates fuzzy logic, explanatory capabilities and dynamic interrelational process models of the crystallisation stage. The primary topic of this paper will be a description of the framework of the SSCS system with focus on: (1) modular design, (2) system layering, and (3) system features.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
