Event Information

Title: W06 Game-Based Modeling

Description: Teams of five to six wastewater industry professionals will compete for prizes and glory in a process modeling competition at the Game-Based Modeling Workshop. Teams will work together to optimize, strategize, and execute operation techniques in five different simulation platforms. Each platform (BioWin, GPS-X, SIMBA#, Sumo, and WEST) will present an existing facility process model with unique objectives and restrictions. New modelers will be exposed to the capabilities of process simulators with a focus on problem-solving during this very interactive workshop.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this workshop, attendees will be able to: 1. Run a process simulation of an existing plant model in five different software platforms. 2. Produce and interpret the outputs from a simulation. 3. Manipulate operational inputs on various process units. 4. Identify where to find information and help for troubleshooting process models.
