Publisher Summary Outlining the concept of process systems engineering and computer aided process engineering (CAPE), this chapter discusses the future developments in the area. Process systems engineering (PSE) has been traditionally concerned with the understanding and development of systematic procedures for the design, control, and operation of chemical process systems. Problems related to process optimization, process integration and process synthesis/design are currently routinely solved through knowledge-based techniques as well as mathematical optimization techniques. Also, systematic methods and tools have been developed and applied to solve industrial problems in the area of planning and scheduling, online optimization, solvent selection/design, and many more.
