Volume 7, Issue 2, Fall 2011 Approach Development for Surveillance Assistance: Spinning Mill Application Walid Chaouch*1,2, Mohamed Ben Hassen1 and Faouzi Sakli1 Textile Research Unit, High Technology Institute, Ksar-Hellal, Tunisia ingenieurtextile@yahoo.fr 1 Textile Research Unit, High Technology Institute, Ksar-Hellal, Tunisia 2 Laboratoire de Physique et Mécanique Textile Université de Haute Alsace, Mulhouse cedex, France ABSTRACT Monitoring the state and the efficiency of cleaning and carding equipment is a goodmethod of determining if the equipment is operating properly to get a better understanding aboutthe actual machine performance. The paper attempts to develop and prove different empiricformulas to determine the partial efficiency index of spinning machines (machines of blowroomand cards) such as: Cleaning efficiency, Nep increase efficiency, Nep removal efficiency, Percentshort fiber efficiency, Tenacity efficiency and Length efficiency. The implicit goal is to be able toevaluate the global efficiency index of various spinning machines by taking into account thesedifferent partial efficiency indexes. In addition, we proposed establishing an approach "DynamicMethod put in Scale (DMS)" which is an attempt to combine two techniques: objective reasoningand mathematical formulas to solve many complex system problems, especially when a system isdifficult to model and control by a human operator or expert. We used the DMS to determine theglobal index efficiency, in order to solve a spinning problem by evaluation of the cleaners andsimulating the efficiency for the different process stages during the treatment.Keywords: Spinning, Blow room, Card room, Global efficiency, Dynamic Method with Scale(DMS).I.
