This paper presents a new computer aided tool for setting up and solving CAPE related static and dynamic optimisation problems. The Model Testbed (MOT) offers an integrated environment for setting up and solving a very large range of CAPE problems, including complex optimisation problems in the different stages of the process lifecycle. The usefulness of MoT is illustrated through a case study, which highlights the design and optimisation of a continuous stirred tank reactor as steps in the process model lifecycle. It is demonstrated how this integrated environment is used for both static and dynamic optimisation, and how interfacing of solvers and seamless information flow can lead to more efficient solution of process design problems.
