SuperPro Designer Videos
These two videos provide an overview of the features and capabilities of SuperPro Designer. The batch and continuous process tutorial videos that follow present the fundamentals of the tool. The videos on cost analysis, databanks and specific examples present more advance modeling concepts.
Batch Process Tutorial
This video presents the fundamentals of SuperPro Designer for modeling batch chemical, biochemical, pharmaceutical and related processes.
Continuous Process Tutorial
This SuperPro Designer video focuses on modeling continuous processes that include recycle loops. It utilizes a simple fermentation process dealing with baker’s yeast production. Convergence of recycle loops is explained in detail.
Cost Analysis Tutorial
This video presents an introduction to the cost analysis capabilities of SuperPro Designer for estimating capital as well as operating costs of integrated chemical manufacturing and related processes.
This video explains how to utilize the databanks of SuperPro Designer for sharing process data and facilitating costs analysis, technology transfer, process fitting and related tasks.
Monoclonal Antibody (MAb) Production Example
This video provides an overview of the SuperPro monoclonal antibody production example and explains a number of advanced batch process modeling concepts. This example is included in the full as well as the evaluation editions of SuperPro Designer. Its detailed ReadMe file provides additional information on advanced modeling concepts.
Brewery (Beer Production) Example
This video provides an overview of the SuperPro brewery example. Its ReadMe file provides additional information on a number of modeling concepts (e.g., energy integration) that are pertinent to brewery processes.
Carrageenan Extraction from Seaweed Example
This video provides an overview of the SuperPro example that deals with extraction of carrageenan from seaweed. It includes a description of the process and information on energy recovery opportunities, recycling of isopropanol in pull-mode and cost analysis results. Detailed information is available in the ReadMe file of the example.
Corn Refinery Example
This video provides an overview of the corn refinery example of SuperPro. A corn wet-milling process is integrated with production of glucose and fructose syrups. The video describes the process at a high level and presents the results of costs analysis. It also addresses modeling of batch steps in continuous flowsheets, recycling of materials in pull-mode, and energy recovery approaches. More detailed information is available in the ReadMe file of the example.
This video provides an overview of the features and capabilities of SchedulePro. The tutorial videos that follow present the fundamentals of the tool.
SchedulePro Production Suite Overview
This video provides an overview of the SchedulePro Production Suite, which includes two satellite applications (the WebViewer and Tracker) in addition to SchedulePro. The WebViewer and Tracker communicate with SchedulePro via a SQL Server DB and facilitate publishing of production schedules through the Internet and tracking of execution of specific batches on the plant floor.
The Fundamentals of SchedulePro
These videos present the fundamentals of SchedulePro by explaining how to model, schedule and manage a multi-product facility that manufacturers medical solutions.
These three videos focus on modeling, scheduling and capacity analysis of a microbial biopharmaceutical facility. The example is equally applicable to other fermentation-based bio-manufacturing facilities. The third video focuses on sizing of purified water systems for such facilities.
These three video focus on production planning and scheduling of a yogurt manufacturing facility. The role of SKUs (stock keeping units) is explained for representing a large number of products with a small number of recipes. This example is equally applicable to other food and consumer product industries that utilize plants that make and package a large number of final products.
Solid Dosage Example (Production of Pharmaceutical Tablets and Capsules)
This video provides an overview of the Solid Dosage example of SchedulePro. The concepts presented are equally applicable to consumer product industries that manufacture a larger number of final products using a small number of bulk intermediate materials. The role of SKUs for minimizing the number of recipes and facilitating scheduling for a family of products is highlighted. The ReadMe file of the example explains things in greater detail.
Polymer Resins Example
This video explains how to model and schedule a multi-product facility that manufactures polymer resins. The concepts covered are applicable to most batch chemical manufacturing facilities.
Probabilistic Modeling and Variability Analysis
This video provides a brief overview of SchedulePro’s probabilistic modeling and variability analysis capabilities that enable users to quantify the impact of uncertainty and variability in processing rates and operation durations. Variability analysis is useful for estimating the realistic throughput of a manufacturing facility.
Water for Injection (WFI) System Sizing
This video presents a methodology for sizing water for injection (WFI) systems using SuperPro Designer and/or SchedulePro. The same methodology can be applied to the sizing of other storable materials and utilities.
