As part of the David W. Bacon Distinguished Speaker Series at Queen's University's Department of Chemical Engineering, Dr. Chris Swartz presented a seminar entitled "Design for dynamic performance: From process plants to supply chain networks". He discussed the increasingly dynamic environment of modern process plants, which must remain competitive amid environmental constraints, increased globalization and demand variability, and electricity price deregulation. Dynamic optimization provides an effective framework for addressing these considerations, as Chris illustrated through several case studies highlighting optimization-based process design for responsiveness and agility.
