The concept of intelligent process control can be developed from models found in biological systems (biological metaphors). The operating principles of these process controls, introduced as the Non Linear Adaptational Network concept, are extracted from the fundamental mechanisms of learning and adaptation of these biological metaphors. Two metaphors are particularly examined as well as the possibility of their implementation to process control. These are the genetic algorithms inspired from Darwin'�s evolutionary theory and neuronal networks.
A general strategy is put forward to apply these metaphors to process control. It is based upon the idea of hybridization of the metaphors on one hand and traditional control methods on the other.
