Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review


ICAS, Integrated Computer Aided System, is a software that consists of a number of intelligent tools, which are very suitable, among others, for
computer aided modelling, sustainable design of chemical and biochemical processes, and design-analysis of product-process monitoring systems.
Each of these tools are characterized by a framework that follows an established work-flow and data-flow, developed to guide the user through the
many steps of the problem solution process. At each, the specific tool knows which data, model and/or algorithm to use. The tool also provides
analysis of the calculated results so that the user can make intelligent decisions to proceed to the next step. The tools contain in-house databases,
especially designed to work in an integrated manner with tool specific ontology for efficient knowledge management. Examples highlighting the use of
the tools willl be given, where the computer aided modelling tool will illustrate how to generate a desired process model, how to analyze the model
equations, how to extract data and identify the model and make it ready for various types of application. In sustainable process design, the example
will highlight the issue of integration of data, models and tools for consistent evaluation of sustainable process alternatives. In the case of productprocess
quality monitoring, the example will highlight the use of model libraries and database to analyze an existing monitoring (PAT) system.
