A multiscale-multifunctional approach to advanced diagnosis and operator performance in complex process systems (2008–2011)

Abstract:
Major industrial accidents such as Longford and Olympic Dam fires and explosions cost industry in Australia millions of dollars a year and possibly billions over the long term. Accidents lead to major safety, environmental and business impacts. This project proposes a integrated approach to process diagnosis based on a novel multiscale-multifunctional framework. It will develop new blended hazard identification methods that generate deep understanding of complex processes that then inform advanced multiagent diagnostic systems and novel operator interface designs. Partnering with two major Australian companies it aims to deliver significant improvements in abnormal condition management with major safety, environment and economic benefits.'',
