—ANFIS employ multi-input single-output (MISO)
system. This paper proposes role of input selection using
neuro-fuzzy approach for the prediction of physical properties
of degradable composites namely melt flow index and density.
Experiments on the physical properties of degradable
composites are currently carried out in the laboratories of
Malaysian Palm Oil Board. ANFIS simulation provides good
alternative method for minimize the time consumed, the cost of
production and the cost of labour on the production of
degradable composites. The results reveal that, all the input
selection give high prediction accuracy by smallest Root Mean
Square Error (RMSE) values and high correlation coefficient
), coefficient of determination (2R
) and adjusted R square
). These findings give additional evidence that ANFIS has
high ability on input selection in the prediction of degradable
