Part of the book: Robust Control
This section shows interesting contents from the development results of author’s past crisp optimization combustion control concerning real boilers of fossil power plants to the upper and lower separation new fuzzy optimization control system plan. The fuzzy decision-type optimization is for elevators and the fuzzy table-like control with zero is for a single-element level control of one tank model. In addition, other researchers’ recent researches concerning other applications are introduced to maintain fairness and balance.

This chapter briefly explains the distributed project management of four joint departments for first-grade joint project-based learning (PBL). That is, conventional studies and purpose, capital, competence and ability of four kinds of distributed project management were presented, and relations among them are shown after describing background (included prehistory of PBL in Osaka Institute of Technology (O.I.T.)). Then, consideration and analysis about communication, interaction, cooperation, merit, week-point, effect and inference were discussed. Some case studies were described about open innovation and competences in stakeholder management. They were distinctive and superior in first-grade PBL of O.I.T. Finally, some future themes were presented.
