The aim of this course is to provide an overview and advanced insight into data analytics and modeling methodologies for process data. Fundamental concepts to visualize high-dimensional and highly correlated process and product quality data, to identify the important process drivers as well as to forecast the process and product quality behaviour will be presented in lectures. Hands-on and brainstorming sessions will be used to solve case studies from the (biopharmaceutical) industry. After the course the participants will be aware of relevant techniques and literature for process data analysis and will be able to evaluate different analysis paths for a given problem.


• Special analysis techniques for process data
• Introduction to multivariate data analysis
• Introduction to machine learning techniques
• Hybrid process modeling based on process data and process know-how
• Model-based process understanding & optimization
• Model-based process monitoring and forecasting
• Application of techniques to industrial use cases

Who should attend:

The target group of the course encompasses scientists and engineers from academia and industry who encounter or are working with (big) process data. The course shall motivate to utilize the presented techniques in ongoing and perspective projects. Previous experience in data analysis can be advantageous but is not mandatory to follow the course.

Course fees:

The course fee depends on the format of that the events. For a virtual course it is CHF 1’750 (CHF 1’100 for academia and 450 for students). For an on-site event it is CHF 2’500 (CHF 1’500 for academia and 500 for students). A 20% fee reduction is offered if the optional pre-course is not attended.
