 GENERAL Quality Estimation Technology – RQE model
The process control industry has been continuously estimation technology provides methods for
shifting the focus away from controlling intermediate determining linear and nonlinear, static and dynamic,
variables, namely Flow, Temperature, Level and process models.

made in Advanced Process Control, especially Model between the candidate inputs and the targeted output
Based Predictive control have overcome the problems using the following modeling methods.
in quality control loop such as process interactions, • Multiple Linear Regression (MLR)
and large time delay. However, there are still many • Principal Component Regression (PCR)
quality control loops not closed because of the lack of
reliable product quality measurement. • Partial Least Squares (PLS)
The Robust Quality Estimator is a software package • Radial Basis Function (RBF)
designed to provide product quality signal as feedback RQE provides statistical 95 percent confidence
to Advanced Process Control applications. It has intervals for the estimated dynamics. RQE uses
