  1. 1. Contributions to the use of designed experiments in continuous processes : a study of blast furnace experiments

    Author : Erik Vanhatalo; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Kvalitetsteknik; Quality Technology Management;

    Abstract : Design of Experiments (DoE) contains techniques, such as factorial designs, that help experimenters maximize the information output from conducted experiments and minimize the amount of experimental work required to reach statistically significant results. The use of DoE in industrial processes is frequently and thoroughly described in literature. READ MORE

  2. 2. On design of experiments in continuous processes

    Author : Erik Vanhatalo; Geoffrey Vining; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Kvalitetsteknik; Quality Technology and Management;

    Abstract : Design of Experiments (DoE) includes powerful methods, such as factorial designs, to help maximize the information output from conducted experiments while minimizing the experimental work required for statistically significant results. The benefits of using DoE in industry are thoroughly described in the literature although the actual use of the methods in industry is far from being pervasive. READ MORE

  3. 3. Adapting Experimental and Monitoring Methods for Continuous Processes under Feedback Control : Challenges, Examples, and Tools

    Author : Francesca Capaci; Erik Vanhatalo; Bjarne Bergquist; Murat Kulahci; Bart De Ketelaere; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Continuous process; Statistical process control; Design of experiments; Engineering process control; Quality improvement; Simulation tools; Kvalitetsteknik och logistik; Quality technology and logistics; Kvalitetsteknik; Quality Technology Management;

    Abstract : Continuous production covers a significant part of today’s industrial manufacturing. Consumer goods purchased on a frequent basis, such as food, drugs, and cosmetics, and capital goods such as iron, chemicals, oil, and ore come through continuous processes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Contributions to the Use of Statistical Methods for Improving Continuous Production

    Author : Francesca Capaci; Erik Vanhatalo; Bergquist Bjarne; Murat Kulahci; Johan Carlson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Process industry; Continuous process; Statistical process control; Design of experiments; Process improvements; Simulation tool; Engineering process control; Kvalitetsteknik; Quality Technology and Management;

    Abstract : Complexity of production processes, high computing capabilities, and massive datasets characterize today’s manufacturing environments, such as those of continuous andbatch production industries. Continuous production has spread gradually acrossdifferent industries, covering a significant part of today’s production. READ MORE

  5. 5. Data-driven predictive maintenance planning and scheduling

    Author : Mahdieh Sedghi; Bjarne Bergquist; Erik Vanhatalo; Ramin Karim; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Kvalitetsteknik och logistik; Quality Technology and Logistics;

    Abstract : The railway track network is one of the major modes of transportation and among a country’s most valuable infrastructure assets. Maintenance and renewal of railway infrastructure have a vital role in safety performance, the quality of the ride, train punctuality, and the life cycle cost of assets. READ MORE
