Field of Research: Multicriteria decision strategy for modular equipment in process industry involving performance, energy efficiency and cost in plant’s life cycle


To cope with current challenges of global competition module-based plant design is a promising approach to reduce the time-to-market. The plant design period is shortened by selecting suitable modules, so that planning documents are generated by configuration of these modules. The P&ID, which includes amongst others information about the equipment types and instrumentation, is generated during early engineering phases. Within this phases plant’s cost are significantly controllable. However, neither detailed equipment data nor information of subsequent planning phases such as the characteristic curve for pump design is available. Hence, the input data for the evaluation of equipment types is limited and uncertain. Therefore, mainly qualitative heuristics or expert knowledge is used. Regarding both conventional and in particular module-based plant design, there is need for a more substantiated approach to select the equipment type and the instrumentation.
