Selection of Polymeric Based Material Composite for Fibreglass Boat Components Using Expert System
In new era in marine industries especially in fibreglass boat construction, a proper material need to be consider for the product perfomance and economical. This paper ilustrate how the selection has been perform to select most suitable material for related body and structure component of fibreglass boat. Expert System has been using as a tool of selection and polymeric based material reinforced with different composition of fibreglass as candidate material. Ranking system has been implemented according to various factors to reveal the best polymeric based material composite for each fibreglass boat component.
