About the Course

This course expands upon flow line dynamics. It introduces the issue of variability, which is the critical factor when looking at capacity management.

Course Description

In this course, we will discuss how to characterize variability, how to measure expected performance of the line, how to build a better line or improve an existing line, and also how to design a line from scratch to meet certain characteristics. We will illustrate these factors through a discussion of variability analysis in a flow line, as well as through a discussion of how to model and measure variability.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Characterize variability in a flow line using easily obtainable data.
  • Evaluate different capacity alternatives and their impact on performance and cost.
  • Conduct simple diagnostics on a flow line to determine which factor should be addressed to improve performance.


This course includes the following topics:

  • Variability Analysis in Flowline Analysis
    • Modeling Variability: Random vs Planned Variability
    • Modeling Variability: Flow Variability
  • Capacity Analysis under Variability
  • Conclusions
