Performance Monitoring and Improvement Strategies

  • Mohieddine Jelali
Part of the Advances in Industrial Control book series (AIC)


The final and most challenging objective of applying performance assessment methods and indices should always be to suggest measures to improve the control or process/plant performance. Even in the case where the loop is found to work at acceptable performance level, it is useful to know how the performance can be improved to attain top level. In this chapter, possible performance improvement measures are briefly discussed. Some paradigms and strategies for monitoring the performance of complex process-control systems are introduced. A comprehensive control-performance assessment procedure is proposed combining different methods described throughout the previous chapters of the book.
