Process control is a multidisciplinary field that encompasses a combination of analytical and process chemistry, process engineering and multivariate data analysis. Process analytical techniques (PATs) involve monitoring and control of chemical and physical processes in order to obtain products with desired properties, to improve manufacturing efficiency and reduce process costs. PATs have been utilised in various industrial branches to gain a deeper understanding of particular process stages, identify crucial control parameters, ensure the product quality by optimal design and determine the process disturbances.

This book discusses strategic management accounting and green supply chain management; analyzes the plant-wide control structures for industrial processes’; the use of vibrational spectroscopy as a tool for in-line process monitoring; and effects of resolution of measurements in the behavior of cumulative sum control charts.
