SC4: Advanced Process Control Strategies in Bioprocesses


This course is focused on critical issues during implementation of advanced process control strategies in bioprocesses. We will summarize specific aspects from data acquisition, data processing to advanced control strategies. We will also discuss software requirements for data management and process control within and along different process scales. The topic is strongly related to PAT/QbD implementation in bioprocesses.

  • Identify bottlenecks in planned process monitoring and automation strategies
  • Define and interrelate software and model requirements for advanced control
  • Definition of basic requirements for predictive models
