The article discusses process analytical chemistry and trends in industry. Process control is one of the most important tasks of analytical chemists, engineers, and physicists in the chemical industry. Process analytical chemistry is a tool for optimizing a process as a whole and thus serves to reduce costs, increase a product's quality, make processes safer and contribute to the enhancement of sustainability. All approaches from off-line to in-line are used in industry. Currently about 85 percent of chemical production processes are batch processes, and 15 percent are continuous. The article also reviews some process analytical tools commonly used or likely to be used in industry.

    The sequential probability ratio test (SPRT) chart is a very effective control chart. It is much faster to detect mean shifts compared with the $$ \bar{X} $$ and CUSUM charts, even their VSSI (variable sample sizes and sampling intervals) versions. This article proposes an SPRT scheme, called...
