Broadly speaking, Soft Computing includes Fuzzy logic, neural networks, genetic programming, Swarm intelligence and much more. The highly automated operating discipline in Chemical Process Plants and manufacturing industries calls for Fuzzy Logic while empirical emulators of fundamental models call for Neural Networks. Accelerated new product development demands genetic programming while advanced process optimization can be achieved by swarm intelligence which talks of consolidated behavior in distributed systems.
