Date: 24 January 2018
Description: Multivariate Analysis (MVA) can be applied to R&D and manufacturing-based data to tackle many different challenges and help meet objectives more effectively. This webinar covers the use of Multivariate Statistical Process Control for real-time process monitoring and sensor fusion models (IoT) following the process from the mixing of raw materials to the finished product. It will also briefly cover the use of multichannel spectrometers for direct quantitative prediction and give an introduction to batch modelling. Attendees will get an introduction to tools for Multivariate Analysis and various real-life applications will be shown.
Date: 05 February 2018
Description: The webinar covers a high-level introduction to MPC, and its application to batch pharmaceutical processes. In an initial presentation, the challenges associated with MPC of Batch processes are discussed. The webinar is primarily a live case study demonstration using a quasi-real time simulation of a penicillin production process. The dynamics of the process and batch to batch variability are explored. Two approaches to batch control are implemented - controlling end points vs. controlling continuously measured/predicted variables. The process is also subject to feed concentration disturbances. The webinar attendees can compare and contrast the differences in the two approaches and evaluate how both reject the feed disturbance

Location: Worldwide
Description: IChemE's Process Management & Control SIG in association with IPCOS invite you to the third in their webinar series.
Date: 12 July 2018
Description: A one hour webinar from the IChemE Process Management & Control Special Interest Group around the topic of Proof Testing.
Date: 20 September 2018
Description: ICheme's Process Management & Control Special Interest Group invite you to a one-hour webinar on the topic of Field Device Interface.
Date: 15 October 2018
Ends: 17 October 2018
Location: United Kingdom
Description: Presented by Henry Kister, a recognised specialist with a vast background in all phases of distillation this course gives comprehensive coverage of distillation technology, with particular emphasis on the problems that can occur and how to solve them. It provides an excellent opportunity to develop a working knowledge of key techniques that can promote trouble-free operation and reduce distillation cost.
