Industrial Application of Optimization

  January 14, 2013  
CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement, 90 Minute Accredited Online Training
March 7, 2013 at 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. (ET)

Who Should Attend
This course is designed for engineers, chemists, scientists, and managers who want a fundamental understanding of optimization and who want to learn how to best implement it in their industry.

It will be especially beneficial to professionals in the following industries:
  • Chemical Processing
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Biotechnology
  • Food Industries

This 90-minute accredited online training course is meant to provide an overview analysis of industrial optimization relevant for the chemical process, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and food industries with an emphasis placed on estimating benefits, selecting the proper optimization methods and understanding the issues associated with maintaining an industrial application. Linear programming will be emphasized because of its widespread use directly in industry and it use in nonlinear optimization. Finally, batch optimization will be addressed due to its importance in the chemical process, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
