Achieving Operational Excellence in the Chemicals Industry Using APC
The goal of APC implementation in the chemicals industry is simple: to maximize margins while meeting customer expectations. Aspen DMC3 delivers faster time-to-benefits resulting in a much higher return on investment. Learn how APC is key to achieving operational excellence.
Benchmarking Organizations During Lean Times
How do contractors and owners manage risk in today’s environment? There is intense pressure to understand estimating uncertainty and deliver better designs and lower bids. By reading this white paper you'll understand new ways to deliver bids faster and increase transparency with respect to estimate risk and uncertainty.
Solving Three Common Problems Through SRU Simulation
Small operational issues in the sulphur recovery unit (SRU) can lead to higher emisisons — or worse, a frustrating and costly shutdown. Simulation of the SRU can enable more reliable operations and fewer shutdowns through the prevention of issues and quick and effective troubleshooting. In this paper, we present three common operational issues and show how simulation was used to prevent or quickly resolve the situation.
BPCL Mumbai Refinery Enhances Energy Management Using AspenTech Solutions
Energy is often the largest operating expense after raw materials for refining and petrochemicals companies, frequently starting out at over 50 percent of operating costs prior to energy reduction programs. Managing and optimizing these energy costs are critical capabilities for a refinery to meet profitability and sustainability targets. This white paper details the journey Bharat Petroleum Mumbai Refinery (BPCL-MR) in Mahul, India underwent to improve operations while optimizing energy costs.
Unlock Agility and Improve Customer Satisfaction Through Enhanced Production Scheduling
Virtually all multinational, diversified chemical companies are expanding their emphasis on specialty chemicals. Competition is intensifying, resulting in both margin degradation and faster product commoditization while customers are further exacerbating the situation by demanding “faster, better and cheaper” products. Learn how to leverage production scheduling to improve customer satisfaction and further take advantage of flexibility inside the plant.
An Enhanced Iterative Process for Sustaining the Value of APC Applications
Learn about how the synergy between innovations in model identification, automated testing and controller operating modes are creating opportunities to bring new efficiencies to sustaining APC controllers. These innovations address some of the long-standing challenges facing APC practitioners: dealing with closed loop data, managing APC solutions with model mismatch until repairs can be completed, and reducing the operational impact of step testing. With these advances, we now have the technology to begin constructing continuous improvement processes in lieu of the traditional sustained value workflows.
