Among the expected results, the integration methodology and architecture are the main originality and challenge of the project.
Other important results expected are:
a petrochemical plant demonstrator
a toolkit for developing complex process control applications
modules, or software tools, initially exploiting the AI techniques of neural networks, fuzzy logic, model-based reasoning, expert systems and intelligent user interfaces
The approach is to make efficient use of the highest competence in different AI techniques, spread among different European companies, and to reach a synergy towards interoperability, upward compatibility and completely integrated applications.
