Abstract: Varied inspection is an online dynamic inspection method where the amount of parts inspected can be changed based on the quality of the part stream and characteristics of the production system. The research outlines the development of a supervisory and distributed Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC) to perform varied inspection. The supervisory fuzzy controller was used to tune the weights of the rules used in the distributed fuzzy controller that initiates the varied inspection in quality control systems. Simulation of a single-station manufacturing cell showed that varied inspection had significantly reduced Manufacturing Lead Time (MLT) through reduced inspection, which could help manufacturers handle fluctuating demands. The contribution of the study was to illustrate the benefit of varied inspection through MLT reduction and to add flexibility to control architectures for quality control systems to aid manufacturers meet demands.
