    When a process is subject to reproducible disturbances, Learning Feed-Forward Control (LFFC) can be used to obtain accurate tracking. Until recently, LFFCs were designed by means of trial and error. In this paper, a design procedure is formulated, according to which a LFFC can be designed in a structured way. The design is based on qualitative knowledge of the process and the disturbances. This design procedure will result in a shorter design phase and better performing LFFC. As an example, the design procedure will be used to construct a LFFC for a linear motor. Simulations show that that the resulting LFFC is able to obtain accurate control.
