Abstract

In this paper, the authors describe the development of a Decision Support System (DSS) in the spunlace nonwoven production industry. The suggested DSS utilizes domain ontology and a collaborative platform that allows operators to share and exchange experiences in the industrial diagnosis in order to have new ideas and useful information for collaborative decision-making. One of the main aspects addressed in the decision-making process was the knowledge management of the most frequently breakdowns of machines as the card, aquajet etc. This paper introduces the architecture of the system, including several modules such as, Reasoning engine and Similarity module, etc. The decision-making is reinforced by a case-based reasoning to recommend solutions where previously solved cases (problem) are compared to recently encountered ones using the same ontology to define similarity between cases. Some experiments have been conducted in INOTIS enterprise to indicate the efficiency of the proposed system.

2. Case-Study: The Spunlace Nonwoven Production Industry General Description

As defined in (INDA, 2002), spunlacing is a method of bonding a web of interlocking and entangling the fibres, and it uses high velocity streams of water (synonymous with Hydroentangling). The web of fabric may have other bonding methods in addition to spunlacing. Spunlacing, shouldn’t be confused with spunlaid, which is generally produced from a web made up of staple fibres from a dry formed, carded system. However, small quantities of spunlace bonding are done on production lines that use a wet laid forming process.

More precisely, spunlacing is a process (INDA, 2002; White, 1990) of entangling a web of loose fibres on a porous belt or moving perforated or patterned screen to form a sheet structure by subjecting the fibres to multiple rows of fine high-pressure jets of water (as shown in Figure 1).
