4. Process Modeling


Use and Interpretation of Process Models

Overview of Section 4.5 This section covers the interpretation and use of the models developed from the collection and analysis of data using the procedures discussed in Section 4.3 and Section 4.4. Three of the main uses of such models, estimation, prediction and calibration, are discussed in detail. Optimization, another important use of this type of model, is primarily discussed in Chapter 5: Process Improvement.
