The present invention provides a method for controlling nonlinear process control problems. This method involves first utilizing modeling tools to identify variable inputs and controlled variables associated with the process, wherein at least one variable input is a manipulated variable. The modeling tools are further operable to determine relationships between the variable inputs and controlled variables. A control system that provides inputs to and acts on inputs from the modeling tools tunes one or more manipulated variable inputs to achieve a desired result like greater efficiency, higher quality, or greater consistency.
