CEPIMA - Design, Operations and Chemical Process Control Group

CEPIMA - Design, Operations and Chemical Process Control Group

The Design, Operations and Chemical Process Control Group (CEPIMA) works as a research group for over 20 years, initially as a result of the coordinated actions of the Research Group "Technology General Chemistry" and "Laboratory Centre for Environment ". His research, development, innovation and technology transfer aims to generate analysis and improved resource management dela productive in the process industry, understanding the term "resource" in its broadest sense: everything necessary for the proper functioning of the process.

Some of our projects


Advanced Support System for Flexible Manufacturing Processes in the Chemical and Petrochemical Industry - ToleranT

The project aims Tolerant design of advanced decision support to facilitate the exploitation of the potential flexibility of integration approaches proceso.ToleranT both vertical and horizontal decision-making systems, facilitating a more rational exploitation of resources and allowing, in a multiobjective and uncertain environment, flexible operation, robust and traceable process and operations. + info


Expanding the Horizons of Manufacturing: Solving the Integration Paradox– EHMAN

The project EHMAN aims to address the global modeling and optimization of the company (EWMO) by developing and applying integrated methodologies for modeling, simulation and optimization and support of computer-aided tools to identify opportunities for improvement entire network of manufacturing (raw materials, production plants, distribution, retailers and customers) and its individual components. + info
