Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The main aim of this course is to give basic knowledge about optimization of processes and plants.Process (Plant) optimization is the discipline of adjusting a process (plant)so as to optimize some specified set of parameters. The most common goals are minimizing cost, maximizing throughput, and/or efficiency.
