A constraint approach for rescheduling batch processing plants including pipeless plants
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractIn the process industries batch plants are attracting attentions because of their suitability for producing small-volume, high-value added commodity chemicals. Pipeless plants have also been developed and built to increase plant flexibility. Unexpected events, such as the failure of a processing unit, sometimes happen during operations. To avoid risk and to utilise the remaining resource, it is important to reschedule the production operation quickly. The constraint model in BPS has been extended to include constraints for rescheduling. These additional constraints are described in this paper and a case study is used to demonstrate the feasibility of the approach.
