About this book

This book presents a number of efficient techniques for solving large-scale production scheduling and planning problems in process industries. The main content is supplemented by a wealth of illustrations, while case studies on large-scale industrial applications, ranging from continuous to semicontinuous and batch processes, round out the coverage.
The book examines a variety of complex, real-world problems, and demonstrates solutions that are applicable to scenarios and countries around the world. Specifically, these case studies include:
• the production planning of the bottling stage of a major brewery at the Cervecería     Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma (Heineken Int) in Mexico;• the production scheduling for multi-stage semicontinuous processes at an ice-cream   production facility of Unilever in the Netherlands;• the resource-constrained production planning for the yogurt production line at the KRI KRI dairy production facility in Greece; and• the production scheduling for large-scale, multi-stage batch processes at a pharmaceutical batch plant   in Germany.
In addition, the book includes industrial-inspired case studies of:
• the simultaneous planning of production and logistics operations considering multi-site  facilities for semicontinuous processes; and• the integrated planning of production and utility systems in process industries under uncertainty.
Solving Large-scale Production Scheduling and Planning in the Process Industries offers a valuable reference guide for researchers and decision-makers alike, as it shows readers how to evaluate and improve existing installations, and how to design new ones. It is also well suited as a textbook for advanced courses on production scheduling and planning in industry, as it addresses the optimization of production and logistics operations in real-world process industries.

About the authors

Georgios M. Kopanos is a Senior Scientist and the Optimisation Leader at Flexciton Ltd (United Kingdom). He holds an MSc in Engineering and Management of Energy Resources from the University of Western Macedonia (Greece), and a PhD from the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (Spain) sponsored by the Spanish Ministry of Education. He was a Postgraduate Research Associate in the Centre for Process Systems Engineering at Imperial College London (United Kingdom), an Assistant Professor in the School of Engineering at Nazarbayev University (Kazakhstan), and later a Lecturer in Process Systems Engineering at Cranfield University (United Kingdom). He has solved successfully large-scale production planning and scheduling problems for major industries from several sectors, such as food industries (including dairy as well as meat and fish processing industries), breweries, pharmaceuticals industries, textile industries, detergents industries, combined heat and power plants, and air separation plants.
