Optimize Batch Process Performance Using Multivariate Data Analysis

This course will help you prepare for the certification exam and the exam fee is waived with this course.
This course will teach you how to get actionable insights from your industrial batch data and to use that information for process optimization and troubleshooting. You will learn how to relate time-varying process data, raw material properties and initial conditions to final product quality and productivity. Using this model you can then troubleshoot and optimize your batch processes.
