PSE: APM Forum 2018 focust op digitaliseren procesindustrieën

Op het Advanced Process Modelling (APM) Forum 2018, die deze week werd gehouden, presenteerden procesindustrie organisaties digitaal design en operatietoepassingen variërend van het versnellen van de nieuwe generatie van farmaceutica tot het realiseren van miljoenen dollars per jaar in winst voor grote procesfabrieken.

Professor Costas Pantelides, managing director van conferentieorganisator Process Systems Enterprise (PSE), startte de conferentie met een beschrijving van de actuele stroom digitalisering als het toppunt van vele jaren aan geavanceerde modelbouw en IT ontwikkeling. “Dit is een era van buitengewone kansen voor de procesindustrieën,” zei hij.

Hoofdspreker Mathias Oppelt van Siemens beschreef hoe betrouwbare procesmodelbouw die diepgaande proceskennis bevat, digitaliseringsinitiatieven door automatiseringsbedrijven tot een nieuw niveau brengt.

PSE: APM Forum 2018 Focus on Digitalisation for the Process Industries

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–At the 2018 Advanced Process Modelling (APM) Forum this week, process industry organisations presented on digital design and operations applications ranging from accelerating development of the next generation of pharmaceuticals to realising millions of dollars per year in increased profit for large process plants.

Introducing the conference, Prof. Costas Pantelides, MD of conference host Process Systems Enterprise (PSE), described the current wave of digitalisation as the culmination of many years of advanced modelling and IT development. “This is a time of extraordinary opportunities for the process industries” he said.

Keynote speaker Mathias Oppelt of Siemens described how high-fidelity process models containing deep process knowledge bring a new level of power to digitalisation initiatives being delivered by automation companies. Siemens later demonstrated digital twin technology for an ethylene plant, implemented using PSE’s gPROMS Olefins software. SABIC showed how new online technologies improved yield by 2% at a large petrochemicals plant, representing tens of millions of dollars per year, and BASF described how digital technologies that combine data and models are enabling an enhanced innovation approach with strong focus on customers and markets.

Keynote speaker Suracha Udomsak, R&D director at SCG Chemicals, said “APM is a key element of our Digital Manufacturing platform. It accelerates innovation by making the development workflow faster, cheaper and safer”.

On the Formulated Products side, keynote speaker Ben Weinstein of Procter & Gamble described how a strategic decision many years ago to back a digital design approach has accelerated innovation across P&G.

Pharma keynote Neil Hodnett of GSK showed how system modelling is applied to accelerate development and transfer of robust manufacturing processes, particularly in the move to continuous processing, through the use of virtual DoEs for in-silico QbD.

Roche, Pfizer, Ferring, Novartis, Sandoz, UCB, Syngenta, Danone and FrieslandCampina described benefits of applying advanced mechanistic modelling to improve drug product manufacture, increase R&D efficiency and reduce risk in scale-up and tech transfer.

Pantelides adds “a common theme is that it is now possible to easily capture deep process knowledge in the form of predictive models, then use these within a digitalisation framework to generate value at every step”.
