Business and Industry Symposium 2007 (BIS'07)

Plenary Keynote Speakers

part of the
Spring Simulation Multiconference 2007 (SpringSim'07)



Dr. C. Michael Overstreet
Associate Professor of Computer Science, Old Dominion University, Virginia, USA


Dr. Frank G. Smith, III
Savannah River National Laboratory, USA

bullet Dr. Overstreet explores a technique for gaining inside models: formal analysis of model specifications. Although insights may come from various activities (e.g., observing behaviors exhibited by the model, analysis of data produced by the model, or experimenting with the model by using different data or changing the model structure), the presented approach can complement those commonly used approaches by revealing interesting model properties that would otherwise not be recognized.
bullet Dr. Smith presents a brief history of dynamic modeling in the chemical process industry and discusses its status today. One factor significantly complicating dynamic chemical process modeling is the need to evaluate physical properties during the calculation. Several examples from experience with dynamic process modeling at the Savannah River National Laboratory will be used to illustrate current modeling techniques. Finally, there will be a brief discussion of future trends in dynamic process modeling.
