In this paper, a scalable framework is developed to analyze complex process networks consisting of multiple material integration loops. Using information on the orders of magnitude of different material flows, the framework identifies the time scales where different process units evolve, and the manipulated inputs available in each time scale, in an automated fashion. The application of the framework is illustrated via a case study on an example process network.
