All participants will receive a copy of SuperPro LT (list price $1000/copy) and a copy of SchedulePro LT (list price $900) as well as detailed sample models for the production of pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, bio-fuels, food & consumer products, etc.
Our workshops are intended for scientists and engineers in the Biotech, Pharmaceutical, Bio-fuel, Chemical, Food, and Consumer Product industries that are interested in: * Modeling and Optimization of Batch and Continuous Processes
- Cost of Goods Analysis
- Cycle Time Reduction and Debottlenecking
- Production Planning and Scheduling
- Capacity Analysis
- Lean Manufacturing
- Pollution Prevention and Control
Instructors at colleges and universities that teach Biochemical Engineering, Pharmaceutical Engineering, Process and Plant Design, Food Engineering, and related courses are welcome to attend.
The workshops include theory on the above subjects and hands-on sessions with SuperPro Designerand SchedulePro. SuperPro is a comprehensive process simulator that facilitates modeling and optimization of batch and continuous processes, cost of goods analysis, cycle time reduction, environmental impact assessment, and other tasks. SchedulePro is a production scheduling and resource management tool specifically developed for the needs of the batch process industries. It handles planning, scheduling, capacity analysis, and debottlenecking of multi-product and multi-purpose facilities. It features advanced conflict resolution, rescheduling, and production tracking capabilities.Functional evaluations versions of SuperPro Designer v9 and SchedulePro v6 can be downloaded from our website (http://www.intelligen.com).
Intelligen’s technology originated at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the late 1980’s. More than 500 companies and 750 universities around the world have already adopted our tools (including 19 of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies and 9 of the top 10 biotech companies).

HIGHLIGHTS OF SCHEDULEPRO SchedulePro is a finite capacity scheduling (FCS) tool that facilitates production scheduling and planning, capacity analysis, and debottlenecking of multi-product manufacturing facilities. It considers constraints related to the limited availability of facilities, equipment, resources (e.g., labor, utilities, raw materials, etc.) and work areas. SchedulePro operates seamlessly with SuperPro (through automatic importing of its recipes) but it also functions as a stand-alone application for users that are interested in scheduling and planning but do not have a need for simulation. SchedulePro is the only production scheduling and resource management tool specifically developed to address the needs of the batch process industries. It has been designed as a practical application for use by process schedulers. Its input and output are in a format that is readily recognizable to batch manufacturing personnel. It does not require the formulation of complicated optimization or math programming problems. SchedulePro provides the flexibility to generate intuitive workable schedules and utilities to visualize and distribute schedules.
Engineering companies use SchedulePro as a modeling tool to size utilities of batch plants, identify equipment requirements, reduce cycle times, and debottleneck existing facilities.
