About the course:

This is a unique and information packed course on Multi-Variable Problems – addressing the nature of these problems in the modern process industries, their effect on process and plant efficiencies and how to analyse and control process variables. Most modern processes are complex in nature and becoming increasingly so with every year that passes. Growing complexity of processes is driven by the ever-increasing competitive demands for lower processing costs by constant process and equipment efficiency improvements.

This course first takes a look at the meaning and implications of complexity for variables control. After explaining a very broad viewpoint on the range of variables and variables interactions, this course addresses the need for all staff to understand the effect variables can have on the process and thus the high risks to profit loss and deterioration. There is a brief but appropriate training on the real cost of failed batches as rework or disposals costs to give context to the need for a total RIGHT FIRST TIME (RFT) philosophy. 

VENUE: All of SADC, as the Course is digital and on-line. Live-course and run at office or at home workshops provides the ideal mix of course contents.
