Process operators often have difficulties with quality supervision and control for the following reasons: (i) analytical results are infrequent and much delayed, (ii) conventional automatic control cannot sufficiently reduce quality deviations, and (iii) several set values can be candidates for correction of quality deviations. Control performance is discussed with regard to these problems, in relation to the degree of buffering, and types of process perturbations and measuring errors. Some methods are discussed for improving the situation, namely, on-line quality estimation from simpler measurements, and integration of off-line quality measurements and on-line quality measurement and estimation by means of state estimators.
