Optimizing Scheduling for Chemical Reactor Efficiency

Background

Our client operates a complex chemical manufacturing process, transferring materials through a series of reactors to produce compounds like TBP and FR245. The unpredictable duration of reactions made manual scheduling suboptimal – output suffered when transfers took too long.  

The Challenge

Relying solely on operator experience to schedule transfers between reactors, our client struggled with:

– Inconsistent material quality due to extended reactions

– Difficulty optimizing workflows for maximum efficiency 

– Constrained overall production volumes and output

The Solution

Leveraging our AI platform, we developed a custom scheduling algorithm and user interface – effectively an array of traffic light signals guiding material transfers.  

By dynamically sequencing reactor operations, we empower operators with real-time guidance to produce consistent, high-quality materials quickly. The system also enables remote process monitoring for added efficiency.

The Results

Since adopting DataDudes AI-powered scheduling, our client has realized:

– 15% increase in production performance  

– Enhanced material quality through optimized reactions

– Improved process oversight and control

Our reactive sequencing and control solution unlocks superior efficiency in complex chemical production environments.
