Special Considerations when Planning Experiments in a Continuous Process

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.] While discontinuous processes dominate experimental applications in practice, continuous processes constitute a significant part of product production. The characteristics of continuous processes affect the prerequisites of experiments to such an extent that they require special attention. Experiments performed in a blast furnace process are used to illustrate conditions when planning experiments in a continuous process. A list of special considerations is proposed, discussed, and summarized in a 13-step check list.
