Expert Systems with Applications

Today’s automotive factories are essentially assembly plants that receive parts from a vast network of suppliers around the world. Transporting thousands of part types over very long distances is a major logistic problem whose solution is a critical factor in the factory management. In this study we have developed a statistical and optimization methodology implemented in a software tool to help the decision makers select the most appropriate container for each part. A key element is to determine the number of parts that fit in a given container. Two optimization procedures have been developed, depending on the type of part, and used to calculate costs of each container. These costs include not only transporting parts from supplier to factory, but also the costs of handling parts within the factory and returning the empty containers to the supplier.

This study describes the procedure to calculate the equilibrium data of supercritical CO 2 extraction of lavender essential oil (LEO) by using the commercial Aspen Plus® simulator and RK-Aspen thermodynamic package. From the experimental and bibliographic data, properties of pure compounds and the binary interaction parameters could be determined. A plant was also designed to calculate the solubility of LEO from the model obtained and the effectiveness of this tool to predict solubility data was verified, with model values very close to those determined experimentally; the maximum value was 22.6 kg LEO/m 3 CO 2 at 40 ºC and 180 bar. These results allowed us to study the influence of the number of stages in the extractor as well as the ratio between solvent and raw material (S/F). The proposed model can be useful to make a preliminary study of the supercritical extraction of other oils avoiding the determination of specific equilibrium data.
