Following the success of a well-received two-day training event in August aimed at pharma industry scientists and technologists, Perceptive Engineering will be running a similar introductory course on process control for the pharmaceutical industry this November, to be held at the Centre for Continuous Manufacturing and Crystallisation (CMAC), Glasgow.
Taking place on Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd November 2016, Introduction to Pharmaceutical Process Control will start with the fundamentals of why and how processes should be controlled, and regulatory control techniques, before moving onto process system identification, and an introduction to the principles and practice of model predictive control. The course will contain a productive balance of informative presentations by experienced specialists in the field interspersed with guided, hands on software sessions. Delegates will benefit from working with both simulated processes and laboratory demonstrations of continuous crystalliser and reactor control systems. Further course syllabus details are available (as a pdf file) here.
This course is free to attend for authorised attendees from members of the ADDoPT consortium. Other parties are welcome to express an interest in taking part by contacting Dr. Matthew McEwan at Perceptive Engineering Limited, 01925 607150.
