Cost: USD $2,100/person

Next course dates:

The main goal of this 3-day course (2.1 CEU) is to get automation resources (managers, engineers and technicians) familiar with various control optimization and advanced control options available in order to minimize process variability, generate savings, and increase profits; and to provide process, automation and plant managers with a solid base to drive business optimization decisions. The course introduces students to current techniques for control optimization and advanced process control. It also shows different tools available. The course explains the different techniques used to quantify, assess, and optimize process control. The course offers a general review of the theory of the different advanced control methodologies, teaches how to define feasibility of using advanced control in processes, and explains the level of advanced control to utilize.
