This paper presents a novel supervisory controller that incorporates both a procedural and rule-based language and is capable of responding to asynchronous real-time sensor interrupts. This supervisory controller has been used for automating the manual operations in GaAs crystal growth in a liquid encapsulated Czochralski (LEC) process-based puller from(More)
Automation of the control of complex systems has been achieved through the application of computers using such tools as closed-loop control, finite-state machines, etc. However, a number of tasks in the control of such processes must still be performed by human operators, resisting conventional automation efforts. These tasks usually involve unforeseen(More)
