Linear programs (LPs) are used for crude selection to calculate the optimal crude schedule for a given time frame, generally a month. The pipeline pumping schedule from a crude terminal to the refinery is generated by a simulation scheduling calculation.http://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3558696/A-new-solution-to-the-challenges-of-crude-selection-and-scheduling.htmlWed, 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 GMTUtilize an optimizer to blend

industries have used different forms of safety control based on what was available in the market. The simple answer to the question of whether SIS devices need to be certified is, "No," but operators and the industry as a whole continue to ask for certification anyway.
