Aspen Technology (AspenTech) Released aspenONE V8 software. The new release delivers a new version of Aspen HYSYS; solids modeling functionality (acquired from SolidSim earlier this year) integrated within Aspen Plus; the new Aspen PIMS Platinum; a new version of Aspen Collaborative Demand Manager; and innovations in advanced process control, energy and economic analysis, the company says.
The new Aspen HYSYS includes a redesigned interface, streamlined workflow and interactive analysis. The integration of recently acquired SolidSim technology into Aspen Plus eliminates silos between previously disparate solids and liquids modeling processes. This makes it possible to optimize all chemical processes together.
The new "Activate" feature in Aspen Plus and Aspen HYSYS allows process engineers to find energy and capital cost savings faster, the company says. Through activated energy, process engineers can quickly identify ways to change designs to reduce energy, saving design time and future operating cost.
The "Adaptive Process Control" feature in aspenONE APC automates many of the tasks that traditionally required control engineering resources. According to the company, process manufacturers can sustain advanced process control performance by making maintenance a continuous process.
