Introduction to batch modeling

February 15, 2017 | Oslo, Norway

Course Overview

In this 1-day overview course, data analysts handling batch data will learn how to analyse and draw valid conclusions from their data. Even though individual batches use the same recipe, they might not follow the same path to the end product. This leads to data that are not aligned and of varying length. The course will explain the theory behind the new batch module available for The Unscrambler®X, and the course participants will learn how to analyze their batch data using real-world examples.


During the Introduction to batch modeling workshop, you will learn about:

  • Batch modeling
  • Alternative batch methods
  • The new batch model
  • Diagnostics plot
  • Demonstration of online modeling of batch processes

The workshop will be a combination of theory and practical real-world examples.
