In the era of Big Data, Industry 4.0 and AI, multivariate analysis is an essential tool for manufacturers engaged in analytics projects.
This 2- or 3-day course provides comprehensive training on how to effectively extract actionable insights from available historical data, including how to efficiently visualize and identify the independent driving forces affecting process performance.
Workshops using real industrial data, executed on desktop MVA software (Aspen ProMV), will provide practical experience to strengthen your Big Data analytics skillset.
Location: ProSensus Headquarters – Burlington, Ontario, Canada
Price: $1,600 USD / participant for 2-Day Course (February 25-26).
$2,100 USD / participant for 3-Day course (February 25-27).
3rd day is dedicated to modeling of batch processes.
Software: Course participants require Aspen ProMV for completion of the software workshops. ProSensus has a limited quantity of laptops with Aspen ProMV that can be loaned to participants who do not have the software.
Marlene Cardin and/or Dr. John MacGregor will teach this course.
Marlene Cardin, MASc – Project Director
Since 2007, Marlene has helped many Fortune 500 companies in the pharmaceutical, food & beverage, speciality chemical, and oil & gas industries get actionable insights from their big data. In addition to working closely with our consulting clients, Marlene oversees the growth of our Machine Vision business which offers fully turnkey machine vision systems for real-time quality monitoring & control. Marlene has a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering and a Master’s Degree in Applied Science from McMaster University (Hamilton, Ontario). Marlene completed her Master’s degree under the supervision of ProSensus founder, Dr. John F. MacGregor.
John F. MacGregor, PhD – Founder and Chairman
John has dedicated the last 40 years to helping manufacturers improve and optimize their processes using multivariate data analysis. During his tenure at McMaster University, John authored over 200 peer-reviewed journal publications in the areas of mathematical modeling of processes, optimization and control, rapid product development and image analysis. John has received many awards for his pioneering work in developing and applying multivariate analysis to solve complex manufacturing problems, including the Shewhart Medal and W.G. Hunter Award from the American Society for Quality, the Herman Wold Medal from the Swedish Chemical Society and the R.S. Jane Award and Century of Achievement Award from the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering. In 2004, John founded ProSensus to help manufacturers learn more from their big data to increase yield, reduce operating costs, and improve product quality.
