Dear Colleagues, We have scheduled a number of two-day courses on batch process modeling, cost of goods analysis, production scheduling, capacity analysis, cycle time reduction, debottlenecking, and waste minimization at various Universities around the globe. The courses are intended for scientists and engineers in the Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Fine Chemical, Bio-fuel, Food, and Consumer Product industries that are interested in: * Modeling and Optimization of Batch and Continuous Processes * Cost of Goods Analysis & Project Economic Evaluation * Cycle Time Reduction and Throughput Analysis * Production Scheduling and Debottlenecking * Variability Reduction * Pollution Prevention and Control The courses include theory on the above subjects and hands-on sessions with process simulation and scheduling tools that facilitate the above tasks. The courses are taught by experts from industry and academia. Instructors at colleges and universities that teach Biochemical Engineering, Pharmaceutical Engineering, Process and Plant Design, Food Engineering, and related courses are welcome to attend.
