Objectives and Content

This course provides an introduction to analysis and monitoring of industrial processes by means of data analytical methods. The course covers univariate and multivariate statistical process monitoring, exploration and optimization of processes using multivariate design and latent variable analysis of historic data, and prediction of product quality and discharges from feed and process data. The methods are illuminated with real examples from both onshore and offshore process industry,e.g., oil-source correlation, modelling of reservoir characteristics from well logs and application on rigs and refineries.

Learning Outcomes

After completing the course PTEK226 the student will be able to:

  • set up and analyse the results from an experimental design.
  • explain the assumptions and basic equations in multiple linear regression, and to perform a regression analysis.
  • explain and to use methods for response optimisation.
  • use latent variables to interpret, classify and predict, and to state the theory behind this.
  • do an independent data analysis using chemometric software.
