Incorporating new technologies to the batch processing industries (BPI) constitutes a difficult task essentially dependent on the specific characteristics of the type of industry. In this paper a brief review of recent developments in computer aided design and operation of batch processes is first presented. The paper then concentrates on present trends in the methodology used. These include the general purpose solver approach and the development of customised scientific approaches that focus on each particular industrial sector. Industrial experience of both approaches is reported and a comparative evaluation and assessment is made. A discussion follows on further advances in computer aided engineering and integration, and the outlook for future directions to follow is unveiled. Finally, the technology transfer problem is addressed at a twofold level: a) feasibility studies; b) operator training. A comprehensive open-ended project considers both levels with regard to incorporating new advances and tools into flexible manufacturing, and can be used as a testbed for future research and development studies. The characteristics, structure and functionality of this project are indicated.
