MKS Umetrics' User Meeting 2015 

We are happy to announce that MKS Umetrics User Meeting this year will be held at Frick Chemistry laboratory, which is part of the famous Princeton University in Princeton, NJ.

Join us for two days where you can meet other users of MKS Umetrics solutions that will share their experiences, new ideas and best practices. Be inspired or inspire others to use it for new or different applications. We hope that the user meeting will facilitate networking between fellow users and create new acquaintances.

The user meeting is an opportunity to collaborate with expert level users from R&D and manufacturing from many different industries.

We will have some interesting presentation from Pall Corporation, Biogen, Umass Lowell, BMS, Kaiser, SanofiPasteur, Cargill, Voith FRS, International Paper, Amgen, Dupont, Janssen Biologics, Merck and more to come.


The agenda will be continously be updated as we get more confirmed speakers.

This year we have increased our offer and we will be providing courses for those interested, the day before and after the user meeting. We want to make sure that you get as much as possible out of the days together with us.

The following courses will be held (more information at the bottom of this page):

  • DOE/QbD – one day course where you will learn how to use Design of Experiments in MODDE Pro 11
  • Batch Modeling – a two days course where you will learn how to build multivariate monitoring models based on their online process data

DOE/QbD 1-day course:

Friday Sept. 11th 

If you are involved or interested in QbD, you get the opportunity to get a 1 day training to learn about the great opportunities that are available since the release of MODDE pro 11, which offer improved functionality for design space analysis and robust setpoint establishment. A novel tool denoted De-sign Space Explorer is at the heart of this improved quality by design (QbD) functionality. The con-nection between factor´s proven acceptable ranges (PAR) and the extent of the actual design space has never been more transparent!

Selected course content:

  • New statistical functions to define an appropriate Design Space for use in QbD
  • Create the full documentation of a multidimensional Design Space
  • Finding a robust setpoint
  • Connection between Proven acceptable ranges and design space
  • Alternative ways of formulating the design space


Batch modeling 2-days course

Tuesday Sept. 8th and Friday Sept. 11th

Using the latest multivariate techniques, participants will learn how to interpret complex data quickly and confidently. Discover the secrets of overviewing data tables and also learn how to build robust predictive models that turn data into decisions. The objective of this course is to teach the attendees how to build multivariate monitoring models based on their online process data. In multivariate data analysis data tables are translated into interpretable figures and plots which simplifies the process monitoring as well as analysis of process deviators.

Selected course content:

  • Organization, visualization and treatment of different types of data
  • Multivariate data modeling and diagnostics
  • Modeling of Batch evolution and batch-to-batch variation
  • Model interpretation
  • Possibilities for on-line process monitoring
