Abstract
The advent of low cost, reliable sensor technology and ongoing dramatic improvements in computer price/performance have transformed the average manufacturing facility into a data- rich environment with millions of bytes of production information stored daily. This production data contains valuable information about the process that can be used by a neural network to model, control, and optimize the plant dynamics. This paper presents a perspective on the use of neural networks and fuzzy logic technology and outlines the methods that have been used to improve process performance in several applications in chemical/petrochemical production facilities.
