Multipass processes (1) are a relatively new class of control system, first introduced by Edwards in 1974 (2) to model processes which may be considered as a repeated sequence of actions by a a processing tool on a material or workpiece. Examples of such systems include the longwall cutting of coal, metal rolling, agricultural ploughing and image processing.
