From process and materials development to maintenance and logistics, artificial intelligence (AI) is emerging as a transformative force across the chemical process industries. As in many other sectors, artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are beginning to emerge in the chemical process industries (CPI). A multicriteria decision making approach applied to improving maintenance policies The aim of this research is to provide more rational application of maintenance policies, leading to an increase in quality of care. craft systems [28], a chemical plant [29], a processing plant [30], the railway industry [31], a newspaper printingCited by:

Petroleum and Process Industry Best Practices in Maintenance & Reliability Abstract – This paper presents an overview of how safety, maintenance, and reliability are interrelated and presents some industry best practices.

A framework for ensuring a holistic approach to the management of these functions is Size: 1MB. This new book shows how to remedy this problem through selecting and implementing actions that promote safe, efficient operations and maintenance, improve quality, continuity, profitability and cost control, build upon and record process experience, and promote the concept that operating and maintenance procedures are vital plant components.

An Applied Guide to Process and Plant Design is a guide to process plant design for both students and professional engineers.

The book covers plant layout and the use of spreadsheet programmes and. Therefore, it is essential that all changes to plant, processes and organization are properly evaluated for impact on safety, and implementation is controlled effectively with additional safety measures if necessary during the period of change.

In some cases, constraints of space, of time, or scope of the Guide have limited the possibility by the authors to fully include. A manager at a chemical weapons plant discovered that toxic by-products from chemical manufacturing at the plant are simply put in barrels and stacked near the boundary lines of the plant property.

Children in the homes near these boundaries have an unusually high rate of kidney disease. Traditionally, most maintenance professionals have combined many techniques, both quantitative and qualitative, in an effort to identify failure modes and mitigate downtime in manufacturing facilities.

But the rise of new connected technologies can enable machines to do these tasks for them, both maximizing the useful life of machine components while still. Incidents often take place during maintenance work or in the implementation of changes.

In many cases, they occur within the first hours after the next shift has started. The ASM Consortium has identified the need for a more comprehensive approach to shift handover in plants with complex operations and Size: KB.

Publisher Summary. This chapter examines the process of combustion involved in industries and process furnaces. Combustion is a specific group of chemical reactions where a fuel and oxygen burn together at sufficiently high temperature to evolve heat and combustion products.

Processing plants are complex structures that use a variety of chemical components to give consumers their desired products.

To introduce machine learning and AI at these facilities, organizations use the most complex computing techniques available, including neural networks and quantum computing. This Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Best Practices Guide was developed under the direction of the U.S.

Department of Energy’s Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP). The mission of FEMP is to facilitate the Federal Government’s implementation of sound, cost. Companies must make design decisions at both the corporate and the plant levels. Key considerations include whether to centralize control, whether to integrate related functions, and what the roles and responsibilities of plants should be.

Shiver, whose background includes maintenance management at Mars' Waco, Texas, confectionary plant, outlined 10 maintenance metrics to drive better decision-making. They include: Maintenance cost per unit of production. Manufacturers must determine the right balance between running equipment to failure and spending too much.

You can make an informed decision based on this analysis. Keep in mind, even if the supplier has the part in stock, getting it to the site will cost a plant a minimum of 24 hours of unscheduled downtime.

Example: $10, (hourly cost of downtime) x 36 hours = $, Data analytics, connectivity and machine learning are helping processors maintain facilities in a more cost-efficient way. Modern technologies, such as smart sensors, data analytics, the industrial internet of things (IIoT) and machine learning, are changing the face of maintenance to help processors ensure they are spending their maintenance dollars in the wisest way possible.

All management decisions are really management with partial information, and one always faces the issue of whether to use the current information or delay action and learn more (or learn more at cost).

Environmental decision-making Chapter Eight Uncertainty, risk and the precautionary principle Introduction Uncertainty, which may be both scientifically and socially based, is an inherent feature of environmental management and arises at many points through the environmental decision-making process.
