  Because the benefits are many, roles for simulation software tools exist from planning and design of facilities through operations and everything in between. And thanks to enhancements, it’s becoming easier to use simulation alongside other software packages, while niche simulation tools are making complex processes easier and less expensive to implement. In general, process simulation...

Ever since the advent of the first computer, the goals of information technology (IT) have been to simplify (as well as speed up and generally improve) the way we do things. As computer systems and software have evolved, however, many chemical engineers would argue that the results in chemical process plants have been far from simple. In the chemical process industries (CPI) there are systems for...

The benefits of field-device diagnostics are often acclaimed in qualitative terms, but on a much lower frequency in quantitative ones. Yet, an attractive cost-benefit analysis is necessary for almost any initiative to make it off the drawing board and into a plant. Even more rare are economic figures that come directly from the process plant engineers (as opposed to a vendor with vested interest in selling...
