Nouvel outil de dcision par contrle prdictif base de modle (MPC) pour l’volution de la chane de production

Abstract: The presented decision tool links management decisions to production optimization. It identifies the possible lacks of flexibility and/or agility in a production environment that is under the influence of some global turbulence factors and for which profitability objectives have to be maintained. In this context, flexibility and agility act as performance measures and quantitative definitions using DCS data are proposed. The tool is implemented using MPC, Cadsim Plus™ dynamic simulation software and DeltaV DCS.
