Several models may correspond to a single definition depending on the language used UML or another language.
Overview[ edit ] Process engineering involves the utilization of multiple tools and methods. Depending on the exact nature of the system, processes need to be simulated and modeled using mathematics and computer science.
Principles in thermodynamics are applied for systems requiring that energy Process engineering the system be considered. Disciplines within the field of mechanics need to be applied in the presence of fluids or porous and dispersed media.
Materials engineering principles also need to be applied, when relevant. All previous work is directed toward defining the scope of the project, then developing a cost estimate to get the design installed, and a schedule to communicate the timing needs for engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation, commissioning, startup, and ongoing production of the process.
Depending on the needed accuracy of the cost estimate and schedule that is required, several iterations of designs are generally provided to customers or stakeholders who feed back their requirements. The process engineer incorporates these additional instructions scope revisions into the overall design and additional cost estimates, and schedules are developed for funding approval.
Following funding approval, the project is executed via project management. Design of the production reactors for the production of plutonium, design of nuclear submarines.
This includes using simulation software such as ASPENSuper-Pro to find out the break even point, net present value,maginal sales, marginal cost, return on investment of the industrial plant after the analysis of the heat and mass transfer of the plant. During this time period, demands for various products began to drastically increase, and process engineers were required to optimize the process in which these products were created.
By this time, process engineering had been defined as "the set of knowledge necessary to design, analyze, develop, construct, and operate, in an optimal way, the processes in which the material changes".
History of process systems engineering[ edit ] Process systems engineering PSE is a relatively young area in chemical engineering. However, it was not until when the first international symposium on this topic took place in Kyoto, Japan, that the term PSE started to become widely accepted.
