Discontinuous processes dominate experimental applications in practice as well as in literature. Continuous processes constitute a significant part of goods production, and the need to gain knowledge using experiments are as relevant in such environments as in, for example, parts production. We argue that the characteristics of continuous processes affect the prerequisites for experimental efforts to such an extent that they need special attention. To describe considerations when planning experiments in a continuous process, experiments performed in a blast furnace process are studied. We propose a tentative list of special considerations, which are discussed and summarized in a thirteen-step check list.
