A large number of industries utilize complex processes in their production lines such as in the production of wine and cheese or for enzyme production. To enable uniform production or to optimize the processes, it is necessary to understand the process itself. When a process is understood, the cause of non-reproducibility in the production line can be found and corrected, and ultimately ensure that the industry can deliver uniform products.
Optimization of a process will ensure a competitive edge for the industry and any optimization will be eased by understanding the underlying process. The choice of sample preparation and chemical analyses will depend highly on the process at hand.
