Abstract

With the rapid development of new processes and technology, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry, the potential gains from developing novel process designs are increasing. The consideration of as many structural alternatives as possible and as early as possible is important. This paper presents an algorithm that can identify the globally optimal process structure. The algorithm has been implemented within the Jacaranda automated design framework. Through the use of interval analysis, an adaptive discretisation procedure has been designed. The procedure does not impart any preconceived ideas of possible process structures from the user and hence may be more likely to yield novel results. A case study demonstrates the ability to generate novel and potentially unexpected results and with improved efficiency.
