ProSensus is offering a 3-day multivariate data course, starting 25
September 2007. All the details can be found here:
ProSensus has run this course several times in the past, and
participants have found it an excellent way to obtain a working
knowledge of multivariate methods.
The course will introduce and go into details about PCA and PLS
modeling, and how to solve industrial problems, such as
-- learning from your data to improve process understanding (data mining)
-- building, using and interpreting multivariate models for:
- monitoring process performance and diagnosing problems;
- predictive models (soft-sensors) and classifiers;
-- a session dedicated to batch processes: learn how to optimize batch
strategies, monitor batches for early fault detection, and achieve
tighter control of final product properties.
Examples are taken from a wide variety of industrial processes, such as
pharmaceutical, petrochemical, materials, and consumer products.
Computer software from major vendors will be used, and participants are
encouraged to bring their own data for use in the interactive sessions.
Participants receive a binder with all slides printed in colour, and a
CD with all slides as PDF's, and Excel data sets.
