McMaster Advanced Control Consortium (MACC)

Based at McMaster University, the McMaster Advanced Control Consortium (MACC) was established in 1988 to promote and advance process automation and related process systems engineering technologies through academe-industry interactions.

The MACC understands that rapid growth in digitalization offers opportunities for responsive operation through intelligent, data-driven decision-making. Its activities are focused on data analytics, advanced control and real-time optimization, and continued development and deployment in collaboration with industrial partners in chemical, steel, food, and control technology vendor industries.
