The use of state space in the representation of plant dynamics provides knowledge not only for the input and output relationship, but also for the internal variables performance. This paper has presented design of full state feedback controller for Direct Current (DC) motor based industrial conveyor system. The dynamics of industrial conveyor system have been represented in state space form. A full sate feedback control technique has been applied to the control loop of industrial conveyor system. The objective is to improve the time domain performance parameters of a conveyor system in terms of reduce lines speed error for faster movement of materials or item in synchronization with the speed of operation of other processing plant within the manufacturing arrangement. This in this case is taken to be the effectiveness of the controller to track a step input representing the desired speed of operation in a very fast manner (settling time of 0.95 s) and reduced error tracking with overshoot of 4% obtained from the simulation conducted in MATLAB environment.
