Computer aided Process Design (CaPD) and simulation tools have been widely used in chemical process industries and have become standard tools for process development, design and optimisation [8, 11]. However, this tool is still relatively new to bio-related manufacturing, which are commonly operated in batch mode [1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10]. In this work, the SuperPro Designer® v6. 0 (Intelligen, 2005), a commercial batch process simulation tool is used to evaluate the economical viability of a pharmaceuti-cal production expansion plan. A case study is presented where five proposed alternatives are evaluated. An economic analysis is performed to determine the most economically attractive alternative.
