The production processes are becoming increasingly complex and the responsibilities of the operators and the engineers are widening. Tools to manage this complexity under dynamic conditions are needed. The dynamic optimization integrated to operator and engineer decision support has a high potential in everyday use. As a result of an EU Commission funded research project a toolset for supporting continuous decision making has been developed. This paper presents a case study, where this toolset is used to reduce grade change time on a paper machine.
