Jacaranda is a system for process synthesis, or automated process design, intended for conceptual or early stage design. It aims to provide the support necessary for creative and exploratory design, helping the engineer identify the important issues and constraints for a given design problem.
Jacaranda has been used for problems in the petrochemical, bioprocessing and brewing industries. The aim of Jacaranda is to provide an environment which encourages the engineer to explore the space of solutions available to him or her. Exploration is encouraged through the following features: ease of problem definition, efficiency of implementation, and ability to extract information about solution space. Jacaranda provides these features in a portable and efficient system.
