Recently, a new approach to the design of fuzzy control rules was suggested. The method, referred to as fuzzy Lyapunov synthesis, extends classical Lyapunov synthesis to the domain of `computing with words', and allows the systematic, instead of heuristic, design and analysis of fuzzy controllers given linguistic information about the plant. In this paper, we use fuzzy Lyapunov synthesis to design and analyze the rule-base of a fuzzy scheduler. Here, too, rather than use heuristics, we can derive the fuzzy rule-base systematically. This suggests that the process of deriving the rules can be automated. Our approach may lead to a novel computing with words algorithm: the input is linguistic information concerning the `plant' and the `control' objective, and the output is a suitable fuzzy rule-base.
