This paper addresses a method for streamlining development and maintenance of fuzzy logic systems applied to industrial control. That method provides for tuning the rules and parameters for fuzzy control of an industrial process, without interfering in the production process itself. The capability to simulate a real-world installation is incorporated into the software providing a target system for the fuzzy controller. The requirements for such a simulator are defined and its benefits demonstrated. This system is developed in a fashion that lends itself well to potential market solutions so that it is more than theory, but also a possible product. It is a fully functional prototype implemented on the!NMOS transputer architecture offering inherent parallel execution among several transputers. Finally, it is implemented in such a manner as to make it modular by design, for future modifications and parallel execution enhancements.
