Several smaller chemical & manufacturing sites lack the capital or expertise to optimize their existing control loops leading process inefficiencies and reduced process equipment life. To improve accessibility to process control tuning, Lambda Tune, a web-based application, was developed combining basic process control fundamentals with Ionic, Chart.js, and Firebase frameworks. With Lambda Tune, users can input process parameters, easily visualize predicted process responses, and rapidly determine how to optimize their process through tuning.
