Business process control (BPC) applies the principles of chemical process control (CPC) to enable an entire enterprise to achieve peak performance. Viewed from the chemical process perspective, BPC is the outer loop that manages the CPC targets with a specific objective of meeting and exceeding business targets. Viewed from the business process perspective, CPC is one specific set of the many inner loops requiring strategic direction. Typically, CPC is the set of inner loops that is extensively…

MPC: Current practice and challenges
Abstract Abstract Linear Model Predictive Control (MPC) continues to be the technology of choice for constrained multivariable control applications in the process industry. Successful deployment of
Comparison of Prediction-Error-Modelling Criteria
The proposed prediction error-methods are demonstrated for a SISO system parameterized by the transfer functions with time delays of a continuous-discrete-time linear stochastic system and the one-step-ahead prediction-error maximum-likelihood estimator gives consistent estimates of all parameters.


Monitoring and Diagnosing Process Control Performance: The Single-Loop Case
Currently, only a few, simple overall measures of process and control performance, such as standard deviations, are monitored. This paper presents a hierarchical method for monitoring and diagnosing
Performance assessment of multivariate control loops on a paper‐machine headbox
A large number of control loops in the pulp and paper industry are multivariate in nature. The main control objective of these loops is to reduce process variation. The satisfactory performance of

Evaluation of process control effectiveness and diagnosis of variation in paper basis weight via multivariate time-series analysis
The dynamic effects and interactions of the process variables are evaluated using the analysis of dispersion (AD) and spectral estimates obtained from the ARMAV models are used to diagnose sources of periodic variation in the process.
Systematic Methods of Chemical Process Design
This chapter discusses the development of Optimization Theory and Methods for Process Design, and some of the techniques used in this work were new to the literature.
Interaction of Design and Control: Optimization with Dynamic Models
This work considers a systematic approach where the interaction between the steady-state design and the dynamic controllability of the process is analyzed by simultaneously considering both economic and controllable criteria.
