    I. Comparison of Batch and Continuous Unit Operations
    · What are the advantages of batch operations
    · What are the advantages of continuous operations
    · Learn about specific processes that are operated more effectively in continuous flow
    · Learn how to achieve tighter control of product characteristics using continuous manufacturing
    · Learn how continuous operations can streamline process development

    II. Plant-wide Control Approach
    · Build first-principles dynamic models for each unit operation
    · Design control systems for each unit operation to meet local material attributes
    · Evaluate performance in simulations and proposed design modifications as needed
    · Implement and verify the control system for each unit operation
    · Design and verify plant-wide control system to ensure that the product quality specifications are met

    III. Interactive Exercise
    Using a real-life example of a continuous drug manufacturing plant, participants will study how material attributes during continuous operations are affected by design changes.
