Summary: The need to adapt to the demands of global supply chains in real-time is of significant importance to the future success of continuous process industries. Amongst such business drivers, it will become critical that process plants are designed to be easily reconfigured as and when necessary. Recent developments in process control have attempted to address this requirement, yet there has not been a systematic effort made on the analysis of the fundamental shortcomings morein the modularity of process control systems.

A Distributed Coordination Approach to Reconfigurable Process Control presents research that addresses this critical question, via developing a new distributed framework that will enable the building of a process control system that is capable of reconfigurability. This framework views the process as a set of readily-integrated, modular process elements, which operate relatively independently and are each supported by a degree of stand-alone decision-making capability. The rationale and benefits of moving towards the new approach is demonstrated by means of a worked example of a real process plant.

A Distributed Coordination Approach to Reconfigurable Process Control will be a useful reference to both academic and industrial practitioners working in the field of design and integration of process control systems. The new architectural dimension presented in this research will also help end-users to gain an understanding of the economic aspects of material flows across their plants, and the ways in which their processes can be integrated across the enterprise. less
