Company

Cybernetica develops, implements, commissions and maintains solutions for model-based control, supervision and optimization of industrial processes. Delivering software applications for advanced process control, providing systems and long-term services, Cybernetica is a partner for excellence in process operations.


Founded in 2000 by Dr. Tor Steinar Schei, Prof Bjarne A. Foss and Dr. Peter Singstad, Cybernetica is a spin-off from the research group in Engineering Cybernetics at SINTEF and NTNU.

Cybernetica has built long-term relationships with several major international companies, resulting in improved process profitability. Cybernetica’s unique advanced process control technology (APC) is industrially proven; Successful installations are in operation in different industries in Europe, North America and Oceania.

Value proposition

Cybernetica’s technology for advanced process control enables increased profits for the customers.

  • Increased production – Optimal production control makes it possible to run the plant close to plant limits, thus maximizing production, without compromising safety.
  • Quality on specification – Accurate production control makes it possible to achieve product quality on specification, to repeat the same product quality time after time, and to eliminate off-spec production.
  • Reduced emissions and waste – Optimal production control makes it possible to minimize emissions, prevent incidents and minimize waste.
  • Improved process efficiency – Optimal production control makes it possible to minimize energy consumption and find optimal usage of raw materials.
  • Intrinsic safety – The optimal production control scheme has built-in, predictive mechanisms for safe operation within constraints.

Cybernetica also offers consulting service in the areas of mathematical modelling, optimization and advanced process control.
