Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using our state-of-the-art simulators. Modern industrial processes are large, complex and have a high degree of interaction between both dependent and independent variables. This makes problem solving difficult and leads to the ?disappearing problem? syndrome. Problems often disappear without being solved only to reappear again. This course deals with a unique approach of combining cause and effect problem solving thinking with formulation of theoretically correct working hypotheses to provide rapid and effective problem solving techniques for the process industry.This course presents an approach that emphasizes the classical problem solving approach (defining the sequence of events) with the addition of the steps of formulating a theoretically correct working hypothesis, providing a means to test the hypothesis, and providing a foolproof means to eliminate the problem. The initial part of the course focuses on defining the problem that must be solved and obtaining the location, time and quantity based specifications of the problem. The initial part of the course is suitable for all engineering disciplines as well as non-engineers. The second part of the course deals with the utilization of chemical engineering fundamentals to develop a technically correct working hypothesis that is the key to successful problem solving. The primary emphasis is on pragmatic calculation techniques that are theoretically correct. These techniques have been developed by the course Instructor in 30+ years of industrial experience. Using these techniques, theoretically correct working hypotheses can be developed in an expedient fashion. The course includes both sample problems as well as problem working sessions to allow the participants to develop confidence with the approach. The attendees are encouraged to bring real problems that they are working to use in discussions on the last day of the course. These problems should be of a non-confidential nature that can be discussed without violation of any confidentiality restrictions. link to course overview PDF
