We view fuzzy logic control technology as a high level language in which we can efficiently define and synthesize non-linear controllers for a given process. We contrast fuzzy proportional integral (PI) controllers with conventional PI and 2D sliding mode controllers. Then we compare the development of fuzzy logic controllers (FLC) with that of knowledge-based system (KBS) applications. We decompose the comparison into reasoning tasks (representation, inference, and control) and application tasks (acquisition, development, validation, compilation and deployment). After reviewing the reasoning tasks, we focus on the compilation of fuzzy rule bases into fast access lookup tables. These tables can be used by a simplified run-time engine to determine the FLC's crisp output for a given input. Finally we illustrate the application of FLC technology in a hierarchical architecture to control a complex power plant for heavy vehicles.
