    Dynamic simulation is being adapted as a common technology for the design and analysis of dynamic behaviour of processes. In a wider perspective, a detailed dynamic simulator is an ideal tool for studying and developing the co-operative performance of process operators, automation systems, and the production processes. The potential of dynamic simulators is not restricted to the design and operator training phase, but extends to the whole mill life cycle. However, there has been a threshold to taking dynamic simulation tools into use by mill personnel, although there would be potential benefits in doing so. This article focuses on presenting experiences in using dynamic simulation in a paperboard mill for the purpose of improving mill performance during transient operating conditions.
