This paper intends to present a novel approach, called PiXAR, combining Pinch technology and Exergy Analysis for the analysis and retrofit design of existing industrial processes. This methodology divided into three steps : modeling and simulation within a process simulation software, analysis of the process with a combined utilisation of pinch and exergy analysis, and finally the retrofit design of the process based upon a case-based reasoning system. The PiXAR methodology, which is intended to be pragmatic, is illustrated through two case-studies
