Process Innovation

We help our customers to apply advanced process models. This enables them to explore the process decision space rapidly, reduce uncertainty and make better, faster and safer design and operating decisions through deeper understanding of their processes. This results in accelerated innovation with faster time-to-market, improved process and product design, enhanced operations, more efficient and effective R&D and experimental programmes, and better-managed risk.

Applying advanced process modeling techniques facilitate decision making at all stages of innovation and development, based on accurate quantification of the options. Our approach to process innovation follows a specific cycle:

  • a model of the process is constructed in a number of stages and is validated against experimental, pilot or operating data;
  • the validated model is used in conjunction with rigorous mathematical optimisation techniques to achieve design objectives directly, without the need for trial-and-error iteration.
