A 40-minute online presentation organised by IChemE's Process Management & Control Special Interest Group, and delivered by Grant Eggleton and Tim Verne. 

WorkshopBP has defined Decision Analytics as the broad range of technologies, scientific and engineering techniques and approaches, in the academic and industrial worlds, that facilitate systems integration and compelling presentation of actionable information from BP’s operations and functions. These include design of sensor systems, data mining and algorithm development together with those aspects of experimental design, modelling and systems & control where integration and the analysis of the data inputs are required to create actionable decisions.

Delegates will learn about the testing and implementation of various decision analytics techniques, the approach taken, issues experienced and benefits achieved.
