This paper presents the control of chaotic supply chain with Artificial Neural Network (ANN) based controllers and the synchronization of two identical chaotic supply chains that have different initial conditions with Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) based controllers. A hybrid intelligent control model is designed in which the linear feedback and active control signals are also used for achieving the control and synchronization, respectively. ANN and ANFIS controllers are trained according to the model. Thereby, the advantages of classical and intelligent control methods are combined. Computer simulations show that the proposed approach is very effective for the control and synchronization of chaos in supply chain systems. (C) 2016 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
