Abstract: “A concept of multiscale modelling of product manufacturing based on integration of three modelling methods currently applied at different scales of length and time: process system modelling, computational fluid dynamics and computational chemistry was presented. Major features of the three key types of modelling in the chemical and process industries were briefly described. The first applications and mutual benefits of joint use of two of the three approaches were presented along with the perspectives for the full integration of all three methods. The crucial role of a universal interface, such as the CAPE-OPEN standard, was emphasized.”

Comments: the authors discuss the integration of modelling methods and point to CAPE-OPEN as having a crucial role to succeed in such an integration.
