This book introduces models and methodologies that can be employed towards making the Industry 4.0 vision a reality within the process industries, and at the same time investigates the impact of uncertainties in such highly integrated settings. Advances in computing power along with the widespread availability of data have led process industries to consider a new paradigm for automated and more efficient operations. The book presents a theoretically proven optimal solution to multi-parametric linear and mixed-integer linear programs and efficient solutions to problems such as process scheduling and design under global uncertainty. It also proposes a systematic framework for the uncertainty-aware integration of planning, scheduling and control, based on the judicious coupling of reactive and proactive methods. Using these developments, the book demonstrates how the integration of different decision-making layers and their simultaneous optimisation can enhance industrial process operations and their economic resilience in the face of uncertainty.


Dr. Charitopoulos is a Lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering, UCL. Prior to joining UCL he was a Research Associate at the Cambridge Judge Business School, University of Cambridge where he worked as part of the Energy Policy Research Group on the optimisation of national energy infrastructure projects. He has been the recipient of numerous awards including the prestigious UCL Newton Award for his outstanding work in the field of sustainability. His research interests include: decision-making under uncertainty in energy and process systems, data-driven optimisation of process systems and smart-manufacturing frameworks for process industries.
