When faced with variable milk concentrate composition the characterisation of milk powder spray driers can proceed via multi-response mixture process models. Alternatively, for fixed concentrate composition driers can be characterised by straight multi-response surface modelling. Application of goal programming techniques to such steady-state models may be used to determine whether product specification can be met and to explore efficient means of production. A simplified example illustrates the fitting of a multi-response mixture process model with subsequent optimisation to attain the pre-emptive goals of meeting product specification and determining an efficient production method.
