Exclusive for Optimize 2021 Attendees: Introduction to Aspen Batch APC

Aspen Batch APC™ technology helps control product qualities at specified targets, optimize batch cycle times by Implementing an advanced control strategy that can predict final product quality and optimize decision variables. In this class learn how to model and control the final product quality of batch products to reduce product quality variation, increase productivity per batch and reduce batch cycle times.

Audience:

  • Process or Control Engineers interested in optimizing batch processes.

Benefits

Lear how to implement closed-loop batch process optimization in the face of disturbances with proprietary state-of-the-art, end-point control technology to reduce batch cycle times and improve yield & quality control. Minimize off-spec product by optimizing batch recipe at key decision points to compensate for variations in raw material and process conditions. Progressively improve control for future batches by continually reconciling the difference between predicted & actual variables from past batches. Push quality targets to new limits after controlling batch variability.
