The mill manufacturing team is mandated with improving operating efficiency and product quality. Optimizing control system performance is an attractive first step in achieving these goals since limited capital investment is required. The process control optimization team requires the long-term support and involvement of senior management. Knowledgeable and assertive management is required to ensure that the action items are implemented and that the economic benefits are quantified.
The objectives of this course are to increase the awareness of variability issues and to review the technical and organizational pathways to improvement.
The course begins with a process variability overview and the management team’s key role in achieving and sustaining a low variability operation.
Optimizing control performance and process mixing are highlighted as important pathways to reducing variability. Measuring the real cost of variability and the value of a variability management program is the final topic.
Approximately 30% of the course is devoted to a computer-based lab.
The course is designed for operations management who want to improve their ability to manage process variability. The course focuses on the economic benefits of reduced variability and identifying where resources need to be allocated. The multi-disciplinary approach to managing variability on an on-going basis is stressed.
The registration fee for the course is CDN $1000 or $ US 800 (taxes included.
The course fee include a full set of course notes (hardcopy or pdf), the lab simulator and course handouts.
Doug has over 30 years of industrial process control experience. He has authored papers on dryer control, control valve selection and the uses of process simulation in optimization surveys.
