Abstract—The hybrid approach of Neuro-Genetic and Genetic Algorithm techniques is developed to model, to simulate and to predict fibre to yarn spinning process and cost optimization. Starting with cotton, desired yarn is produced on ring frame. The quality and cost of resulting yarn play a significant role to determine its end application. The challenging task of any spinner lies in producing a yarn as percustomer demand with added cost benefit. In this study, a Neuro-genetic concept is used to predict fibre properties for desired yarn. Genetic Algorithm approach is used further for cost optimization. These are combined into the so-called hybrid modeling frame work. The performance of Hybrid innovative model is superior compared to current manual machine intervention. The present model may be a fine framework for development of similar applications for complex model that require prediction and multi-objective optimization.
