The past few years have seen rapid developments in computer technology, giving rise to a range of system control options which can be applied in the process industries. These include; open systems, expert systems, neural networks, fuzzy systems and object-oriented systems, all of which are covered in this key volume, which provides an invaluable summary of the latest international research in this area.


For engineers in the process industries, academics specializing in the control aspects of process engineering, software engineers and researchers, regulatory bodies and government laboratories.
