The fundamentals of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques are introduced briefly in this chapter. The definition, significance and classification of AI techniques are presented first. Some representative AI techniques, especially those which have been used in solving decision-making problems in the apparel supply chain operations, are then introduced to help readers understand AI techniques used in subsequent chapters. These techniques include rule-based expert systems, evolutionary optimization techniques, feedforward neural networks and fuzzy logic. Their relevant fundamentals are introduced, including their origins, fundamental characteristics, possible applications and the procedures of implementation.
