There has been substantial progress in the theory and practice of automatic control through application of mathematical analysis and numerics. Symbolic data processing has, however, so far only had marginal influence on control systems despite the fact that the actual engineering of control systems contains a substantial amount of heuristic logic. This paper shows how the logic may be replaced by an expert system. This leads to simplification of conventional systems and makes it possible to obtain control systems with new capabilities.
