Towards multivariate statistical process control in the wood pellet industry

Lestander, Torbjörn; Holmberg, Conny; Stenberg, L; Lehtonen, Roger


The results illustrate the possibilities to implement MSPC in the wood pellet industry, potentially handling huge amounts of data. To develop and implement the next phase of process control more parameters must be included in the MSPC models, e.g. data acquired using on-line instruments to continuously collect information on variations in the stream of material.
