Abstract Smart Manufacturing is the dramatically intensified and pervasive application of networked information-based technologies throughout the manufacturing and supply chain enterprise. The defining technical threads are time, synchronization, integrated performance metrics and cyber-physical–workforce requirements. Smart Manufacturing responds and leads to a dramatic and fundamental business transformation to demand-dynamic economics keyed on customers, partners and the public; enterprise performance and variability management; real-time integrated computational materials engineering and rapid qualification, demand-driven supply chain services; and broad-based workforce involvement. IT-enabled Smart factories and supply networks can better respond to national interests and strategic imperatives and can revitalize the industrial sector by facilitating global competitiveness and exports, providing sustainable jobs, radically improving performance, and facilitating manufacturing innovation.

Abstract The term Process Systems Engineering (PSE) is relatively recent. It was coined about 50 years ago at the outset of the modern era of computer-aided engineering. However, the engineering of processing systems is almost as old as the beginning of the chemical industry, around the first half of the 19th century. Initially, the practice of PSE was qualitative and informal, but as time went on it was formalized in progressively increasing degrees. Today, it is solidly founded on engineering ...

An integrated chemical production complex provides a rich environment for the application of enterprise-wide optimization techniques. A world scale site can be composed of dozens of production plants manufacturing hundreds of products. This paper discusses the nature of an integrated chemical production site to identify the opportunities for enterprise-wide optimization. It shows how the site is composed of sub-systems, called envelopes, which involve the production of a basic chemical and its d...

T he process industry is involved with the conversion of raw materials, through a series of chemical processing steps, to valued products and is a key economic sector in the U.S. and globally. The global market share and business performance of the process industry is heavily based on the value that can be generated from its assets which are comprised of process sites, people and materials, as well as intellectual property in the form of product knowledge, process expertise and physical properti...

Abstract In chemical process operation, the purpose of control is to achieve optimal process operation despite the presence of significant uncertainty about the plant behavior and disturbances. Tracking of set-points is often required for lower-level control loops, but on the process level in most cases this is not the primary concern and may even be counterproductive. In this paper, different approaches how to realize optimal process operation by feedback control are reviewed. The emphasis is o...

Enterprise-wide optimization (EWO) is a new emerging area that lies at the interface of chemical engineering and operations research, and has become a major goal in the process industries due to the increasing pressures for remaining competitive in the global marketplace. EWO involves optimizing the operations of supply, manufacturing and distribution activities of a company to reduce costs and inventories. A major focus in EWO is the optimal operation of manufacturing facilities, which often re...

In this paper, we give a tutorial overview of how the convergence of business decision making (BDM), information technology and computer aided process decision making can make organizations adaptive. One framework for advancing the conflux of these ideas is provided by distributed network theory and non-equilibrium thermodynamics. In this theory, the integrated system of decision makers, software and physical devices are viewed as a network of semi-autonomous activities that interact through bou...

Promoting and applying circular strategies in the product planning stage by industrial designers have significant environmental impacts. Product design has an enormous influence on sustainable ecology. Huge amounts of data analysis in designing circular products as well as reducing human biases in testing and prototyping are the main reasons for urging digital technologies in industries. Digitalization assets in ecodesign in collaboration with humans and as a complement for human skills. This st...

The increasing awareness of customers toward climate change effects, the high demand instability affecting several industrial sectors, and the fast automation and digitalization of production systems are forcing companies to re-think their business strategies and models in view of both the Circular Economy (CE) and Industry 4.0 (I4.0) paradigms. Some studies have already assessed the relations between CE and I4.0, their benefits, and barriers. However, a practical demonstration of their potentia...

The necessity for decreasing the negative impact of the manufacturing industry has recently increased. This is getting recognized as a global challenge due to the rapid increase in life quality standards, demand, and the decrease in available resources. Thus, manufacturing, as a core of the product provision system and a fundamental pillar of civilized existence, is significantly influenced by sustainability issues. Furthermore, current manufacturing modeling and assessment criteria require inte...
