 Textile Research Journal: Predicting Worsted Spinning Performance with an Artificial Neural Network Model
For this reason, it is necessary to develop an empirical model that can encompass all known processing variables that exist in different spinning mills, and then generalize this information and be able to accurately predict yarn quality for an individual mill.
It predicts worsted spinning performance and resultant yarn properties when a spinning mill operates according to "world best practice", rendering it a very useful benchmarking tool.
On the other hand, improved prediction capabilities for ends down, a multivariable parameter dependent on the interactions of yarn strength, yarn irregularity, and tensions imposed by the spinning speed, traveller weight, and ring size [7], may be achieved by using a multi-layer perceptron (MLP) with the ability to solve nonlinear, nondeterministic relationships.
