New release of aspenONE optimisation software promises greater accuracy for process manufacturers

The new functionality aspenONE enables process manufacturers to operate units close to peak performance while simultaneously generating closed loop data suitable for calibrating APC models.

The new functionality eliminates aggressive step testing while preserving the economic benefits of Aspen DMCplus applications.

New Configuration Wizards make it easy to configure Aspen DMCplus controllers to calibrate APC models. The new release also upgrades the performance of Aspen Adaptive Modeling by automatically slicing out bad data resulting from problematic PID loop conditions — including valve saturation, PID mode changes, process upsets and bad measurements.  This improves control model fidelity.

These improvements improve the synergy between multivariable predictive control, intelligent data selection and closed loop model identification.  This makes it easier to maintain accurate models as plants change over time.

AspenTech also introduced Crude Assay Management for Aspen PIMS Refinery Planning Software. The new functionality in Aspen PIMS enables refinery planners to deliver more accurate plans and make better crude purchase decisions, yielding higher profitability.

Aspen PIMS software helps petroleum and petrochemical companies optimise feedstock selection, operational execution and product slate.

The new release of Aspen PIMS delivers a breakthrough in assay management that makes it easier for planners to add, modify and re-cut assays.  This streamlines workflow, makes updating assays faster, and reduces manual errors that require planners to re-enter or upload assay information.

Additional functionality in the new release of Aspen PIMS includes enhanced parametric analysis.  This enables planners to run more cases to analyse more crude scenarios quickly, delivering better insight for improved decision-making and performance.

The new release also makes it easier to share assays and production targets with Aspen Petroleum Scheduler (formerly Aspen Orion).

For the first time, process engineers can now compare simulation results to historical and real-time data on the simulation flowsheet.

This functionality makes it easier for Aspen Plus and Aspen HYSYS users to optimise and troubleshoot their manufacturing assets.

Aspen Plus and Aspen HYSYS can now optimise data discovery and analysis to help make better decisions. They can find plant data based on characteristics including tag types and tag attributes.

Search delivers the right information faster, with results organised by relevance and previews available for all historical attributes.

Process engineers can find models, tags, documents and data in seconds, even if they have not used Aspen Plus or Aspen HYSYS software before.

They can search by features, components, reaction, unit operation types and more. Search functionality in Aspen Plus and Aspen HYSYS also helps companies build modeling communities.

Models remain current because it is easier to find, connect and collaborate with model authors. This delivers continuous value across the organisation, capturing and preserving institutional knowledge.
