Scope and research lines
Scope and research lines

eXiT group develops an active research in the field of process supervision with emphasis in the integration of methods and techniques to assess process behaviour from measurements and experience reuse based on the following main points:

  • Case Based Diagnosis

  • Multivariate statistical process control

  • Qualitative representation of trends

  • Knowledge discovering in data bases for situation assessment

  • Agent-based distributed planning and scheduling

  • Remote and virtual laboratories.
