Since the 1950s, the field of process systems engineering (PSE) research experienced growth. PSE research has contributed several ways in which a process or energy system could be designed. To describe the aforementioned “ways” to design process or energy systems, several papers have used varied terminologies such as approach, methodology, method, procedure and technique (AMMPT). These five terms have been used frequently and interchangeably. However, these five terms do possess distinct…
