ENGLISH ABSTRACT: There is widespread evidence that industrial systems do not consistently perform in a stable fashion regardless of how diligently they have been designed and operated. Operation of a system is often in a dynamic sense chaotic or verges on the chaotic. The essence of such performance deserves analysis using the tools of chaos theory.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Daar is voldoende getuienis dat industrie sisteme nie altyd stabiel funksioneer nie, ten spyte van die noulettendheid waarmee hulle ontwerp en bedryf word. Die gedrag van n sisteem is soms in n dinamiese sin chaoties of bykans chaoties. Sodanige sisteme verdien ontleding met behulp van die gereedskap van die warboelleer (chaosteorie).
