Advanced process automation and control

Duration: 5 days
Price: £3,750+VAT

Our advanced courses are aimed at those working in research & development, process development and those are who are already working in the sector, who want to gain a deeper understanding of the theory and techniques used in biomanufacturing, understand and experience state-of-the-art techniques and methodologies, and appreciate the current and future challenges in biomanufacturing.

This five-day course provides in-depth training in the benefits, strategies and concepts of automation and control in industrial biomanufacturing, including the challenges and operational complexity in maintaining productivity, efficiency, and quality in the bioprocessing environment and on multi-unit production lines. This course moves on from standard control strategies, to look at achieving operational efficiency through state-of-the-art process automation and control. Participants learn about the initial phases of building the control improvement business case, and how the benefits of advanced automation and control often far outweigh the cost of implementation. The Advanced Control Engineer’s ‘Toolkit’ is discussed in detail to understand how these approaches can be implemented in the development and regulated manufacturing environment.

Learning outcomes:

  • Gain in depth knowledge of the opportunities afforded by process control to maximise productivity, efficiency, and quality in bioprocessing.
  • Use cost-benefit analysis to evaluate state-of-the-art process automation and control.
  • Apply gained knowledge and a ‘Toolkit’ approach to implement improvements in process automation and control in a regulated manufacturing environment.

Who should attend:

  • Engineers, technical staff and managers with at least 3 years’ experience within the biomanufacturing industry wishing to develop and extend their current standard control implementations, also scientists and engineers working in broader bio-based industries where the concepts and approaches can be applied.
