Integrated workflow, estimating and costing software enhancement

Aspen Technologies has announced the availability of new enhancements to aspenONE Engineering V8.8 software.  

Developed for firms in the oil, gas, refining, chemicals, mining, engineering and construction, and other process industries, aspenONE V8.8.2 includes updates to the Aspen Economic Evaluation and the Aspen Exchanger Design and Rating (EDR) product families.  

The latest upgrades deliver integrated workflow and costing improvements that allow leading global firms to minimise capital expenditures, improve project design efficiency and boost operational profitability.

The latest release of Aspen Capital Cost Estimator (ACCE) software includes the annual Cost Basis update for 2015, which is integrated into the entire Aspen Economic Evaluation suite of products.  

ACCE V8.8.2 software allows users to accurately and quickly estimate the total cost of equipment, labour and related services in new markets and locations, and to independently evaluate Engineering and Construction (E&C) and vendor quotations, using cost data that reflects market changes over the past year.  Designed for use throughout the estimating lifecycle, ACCE creates value and mitigates risks for potential and current projects by incorporating project scope changes and managing costs early on in the design process, aligning E&C and owner-operator expectations and work processes.

Aspen EDR software V8.8.2 conforms to the latest versions of design codes, including the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and European standards.  Aspen Shell & Tube Mechanical design calculation output forms have been redesigned to appear in the same style as current international design codes, streamlining compliance requirements.  

The inclusion of the 2015 Cost Basis updates in the latest release produces realistic cost estimates for more competent bids and faster, informed project decision-making.
