The 2015 CAPD Shortcourse - May 6 - 13
The annual CAPD Shortcourse begins this week and runs through next Wednesday.
This course is taught by Professors Biegler, Grossmann, Sahinidis, Siirola and Ydstie, and is organized in seven modules that can be taken altogether or in subsets.
The topics include conceptual design, nonlinear, discrete and global optimization, and integrated process planning, scheduling and control. The course stresses the application of optimization models and methods to practical process problems, and recently developed process synthesis concepts.
Geared to the practitioner, this course provides practical information and exposure to powerful and sophisticated modeling tools for process synthesis, planning, scheduling and dynamics and control, including treatment of uncertainty. In addition, the course emphasizes systematic solution approaches and provides the necessary background to understand the tools and apply them correctly and efficiently to your process problem.
Course participants will address these topics through lectures and hands-on workshops. Specific computer methods will include modeling tools, nonlinear and mixed integer programming codes.
