Batch, the Future of Process Design?

Jonathan M. Vinson, Aspen Technology, 200 Wheeler Rd, Burlington, MA 01803

Process design for the batch industries, particularly pharmaceutical process design, heavily relies on collaboration across technical functions and across time. Whereas traditional chemical development can happen in the space of a few months, pharmaceutical development spans many years and has many requirements beyond providing a manufacturable process. This has interesting applications for chemical engineering design education, particularly with respect to providing guidance on how traditional chemical engineering activities are blended into the larger efforts of the business.
