Modeling and optimization of batch processes may become very complex when it comes to the level of detail required to adequately represent real-life operations, and very difficult to standardize if it involves a very wide variety of operations, as happens to be the case of the batch industries. Also a major limitation of present solutions is that they do not adequately reflect the distributed nature of the problem in terms of organization and production units. As a consequence, internal disturbances occurring at any level of this organizational context, or external perturbations caused by the market environment may create frequent and irrecoverable readjustments in real-life industrial operations.

An integrated platform has been created that incorporates simulation tools, optimization and production scheduling techniques in conjunction with real time plant measurements and control aiming at product quality enhancement and waste reduction. The system`s architecture will is described and its functional capabilities demonstrated in examples of increasing complexity extracted from industrial scenarios.
