Industrial operations are constantly challenged with improving production rates, yields, energy efficiency and process stability. Multivariable Model Predictive Control has proven to be an effective tool for improving operations by utilizing the full process capabilities consistently. However, the skills required to implement the technology and sustain the substantial benefits has been hampered by the usability of the software and adaptability of the applications.
Many new technology developments have improved the usability and adaptability of multivariable model predictive control. These developments include modern and intuitive user interfaces, customizable models to support unique process behavior, fast and flexible OPC connection tools, automated model building, integration with first principles dynamic models, improved performance monitoring among others. This presentation will review the new technology developments that have improved the usability and adaptability of advanced process control and how they impact industrial operations of many types.
