In this paper, a specific concept to implement adaptive fuzzy rules systems is described. This is achieved by integrating weight factors directly into the membership functions of the rules. The resulting possibility to change the influence of individual rules is discussed in detail. The scheme also supports the systematic growing of specialized mutants from existing rules. In this way, a combination of precautious behaviour, and more specialized, e.g. also performance-related operations, can be achieved. Some examples of rule schemes illustrate the potential of the concept.
