Refinery Process Optimization Using Response Surface Methodology (RSM)

Refinery Process Optimization Using Response Surface Methodology (RSM)

Date/Time: Date(s) - 14/09/2022 - 16/09/2022( 8:00 am - 5:00 pm )
Location: Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur


  • Understand the issues and principles of response surface methodology in optimizing a process
  • Know the first order and second order response surface how to find the direction of steepest ascent (or descent) to maximize (or minimize) the response
  • Know how to deal with several responses simultaneously (Multiple Response Optimization)
  • Look for the factor level combinations that give the maximum yield and minimum costs in a refinery setting
