This course emphasizes the criticality and application of Data Reconciliation to flow metering data. The basic principles covered will apply to all measured data which is required to be reconciled.
Course Structure: 6 modules of 2.5 hours each, delivered over 3 days
Each day will consist of 2 modules of 2.5 hours, with multiple breaks.
Course Level: Foundation
Instructor: Mohit Narain
Designed for you, if you are...This course is suitable for professionals at any level working in Process Engineering.
Prerequisites: Professionals with any engineering qualifications as well as those conversant with basic principles of minimisation and preliminary knowledge of basic statistics shall derive maximum benefit.
How we build your confidence
- Highly interactive instructor-led course
