WG 2.2 Process Operation


The "Process Operation" working group addresses issues including the following topics in the context of its experience exchange, its concept developments, formulation of requirements to be met by automation solutions and its involvement in national and international standardisation:

    • Data analysis methods
    • Steady-state/dynamic modelling and simulation
    • Training systems (e.g. Operator Training Simulator)
    • Regulatory control
    • Advanced Process Control
    • Optimisation of process operation strategies
    • Process Monitoring and Diagnosis

    Process Operation as a part of automation technology forms an interface between

      • Process Engineering
      • Control System Technology
      • Control Engineering
      • Information Technology
      • Project Management


        • Recommendations and exchange for application of  technologies and solutions
        • Evaluation of new solutions
        • Efficient implementation of established process operation solutions
        • Prevention of unprofitable investments
        • Initiation of further well-focused development
        • Promotion of practical, standardised solutions
        • Actively influence norms and standards to protect users interests
        • Further development of existing products aligned with user requirements
