Dynamic modeling and simulation software can be used to simulate the industrial processes such as papermaking in order to improve the efficiency of the process. A dynamic simulation model can be combined with an optimization method to maximize the advantages which simulation tools can offer. In this paper, we combine dynamic process simulation and optimization to see how it can benefit a papermaking process which was envisaged to consist of a TMP mill, stock preparation, short circulation, a paper machine, and a reel. The aim is to increase the efficiency and minimize the costs involved in papermaking.
