Abstract: Most (if not all) available control theories assume that a control structure is given at the outset. They therefore fail to answer some basic questions that a control engineer regularly meets in practice (Foss 1973): 'Which variables should be controlled, which variables should be measured, which inputs should be manipulated, and which links should be made between them?' These are the questions that plantwide control tries to answer. There are two main approaches to the problem, a mathematically oriented approach (control structure design) and a process oriented approach. Both approaches are reviewed in the paper. We also provide some definitions of terms used within the area of plantwide control.

May 2016: MIC reaches 2000 DOI Forward Links. The first 1000 took 34 years, the next 1000 took 2.5 years.


July 2015: MIC's new impact factor is now 0.778. The number of papers published in 2014 was 21 compared to 15 in 2013, which partially explains the small decrease in impact factor.


Aug 2014: For the 3rd year in a row MIC's impact factor increases. It is now 0.826.


Dec 2013: New database-driven web-design enabling extended statistics. Article number 500 is published and MIC reaches 1000 DOI Forward Links.


Jan 2012: Follow MIC on your smartphone by using the RSS feed.
