Digital design, digital operations

Creating immediate value through digital solutions … from concept to operation

Advanced process modelling is a key technology for creating both immediate and long-term value within digitalisation initiatives through the leveraging of deep process knowledge.

Current digital design practice centres on model-based approaches that integrate high-fidelity models with experimental data, with key objectives being to generate value in the form of optimised process designs, to manage technology risk and to accelerate innovation.

Increasingly, model-based approaches are at the heart of a new generation of intelligent digital operations applications, where high-fidelity models are applied in operating plants to create daily value through monitoring, soft-sensing, optimisation and advanced process control applications.

Both topics are the core focus of the 2020 Advanced Process Modelling Forum, which will be held in London on 24 and 25 March 2020.

Plenary sessions with talks from industry leaders will cover recent advances in digital solutions technology and applications, including current topics such as

  • the systematic use of high-fidelity process models to convert experimental and plant data to high-value information
  • the use of global systems analysis to identify and manage risk and uncertainty
  • the utilisation of high-performance computing facilities to accelerate digital design via systematic exploration of the decision space
  • the use of new hybrid data-driven and first-principles models, and the application of fast-solving surrogate models
  • new opportunities to optimise the complete end-to-end operational cycle created by the recent acquisition of PSE by Siemens, through leveraging of complementary technologies
  • practical steps to creating value rapidly from existing modeling investment.

Parallel Energy & Chemicals and Formulated Products (including Life Sciences, Food & Dairy, Home & Personal Care) tracks will focus on industrial customer applications and experience, with presentations from leading innovators in these sectors on diverse topics such as integrated plant network optimisation and digital design of pharmaceutical processes. Optional workshops for PSE’s gPROMS FormulatedProducts and gPROMS ProcessBuilder digital design environments will take place on Monday, 23 March and a Process Safety seminar on Wednesday, 25 March.

The 2020 Forum is an excellent opportunity for you and your team to hear directly from proven business leaders, technology experts and your peers how they are using digital solutions to accelerate innovation, improve efficiency, and create new value and competitive advantage.
