Fuzzy discrete event systems (DESs) were proposed recently by Lin and Ying [19], which may better cope with the real-world problems of fuzziness, impreciseness, and subjectivity such as those in biomedicine. As a continuation of [19], in this paper, we further develop fuzzy DESs by dealing with supervisory control of fuzzy DESs. More specifically: 1) we reformulate the parallel composition of crisp DESs, and then define the parallel composition of fuzzy DESs that is equivalent to that in [19]. Max-product and max-min automata for modeling fuzzy DESs are considered, 2) we deal with a number of fundamental problems regarding supervisory control of fuzzy DESs, particularly demonstrate controllability theorem and nonblocking controllability theorem of fuzzy DESs, and thus, present the conditions for the existence of supervisors in fuzzy DESs; 3) we analyze the complexity for presenting a uniform criterion to test the fuzzy controllability condition of fuzzy DESs modeled by max-product automata; in particular, we present in detail a general computing method for checking whether or not the fuzzy controllability condition holds, if max-min automata are used to model fuzzy DESs, and by means of this method we can search for all possible fuzzy states reachable from initial fuzzy state in max-min automata. Also, we introduce the fuzzy n-controllability condition for some practical problems, and 4) a number of examples serving to illustrate the applications of the derived results and methods are described; some basic properties related to supervisory control of fuzzy DESs are investigated. To conclude, some related issues are raised for further consideration.
