Plenary talk at CPHS 2016

Sebastian Engell was invited to give a plenary talk at the "1st IFAC Conference on Cyber-Physical & Human-Systems" (CPHS, 7-9 December 2016, Florianopolis, Brazil).


He presented approaches and results of the EU project MORE ("Real-time Monitoring and Optimization of Resource Efficiency in Integrated Processing Plants").The goal of MORE is to monitor resource efficiency during daily operations of large production plants and to influence the operational decisions such that the plant efficiency is optimized and the environmental footprint is constantly minimized. Towards reaching this goal, indicators are defined that provide meaningful information about the resource efficiency over short periods of time like hours or days, and new analytical measurements to provide the necessary data were screened and tested. Based on the new indicators, decision support for the operating staff is developed to guide the decisions towards higher resource efficiency.

Besides Prof. Engells plenary talk on Operator Support for Improving Resource Efficiency in Chemical Plants the following papers were presented:

Daniel Ackerschott, Benedickt Beisheim, Stefan Kramer, Sebastian Engell: Industrial Application of Multi-criterial Decision Support to improve the Resource Efficiency

Clemens Lindscheid, Andreas Bremer, Daniel Haßkerl, Alexandru Tatulea-Codrean, Sebastian Engell: A Test Environment to Evaluate the Integration of Operators in Nonlinear Modes-Predictive Control
