By: Aspen Technology Inc. March 13, 2014
Aspen Technology, Inc. has released version 8.5 of its aspenONE Manufacturing and Supply Chain software.
Elements include aspenONE Process Explorer, to improve visualization and analysis of plant-operations data; PIMS Platinum, to compare refinery plans and schedules side by side; and Petroleum Scheduler, to integrate refinery and dock scheduling. Process Explorer translates data collected by Aspen InfoPlus.21. PIMS Platinum features a Web-based flowsheet environment, allowing users to run multiple planning scenarios. Petroleum Scheduler looks to minimize losses from demurrage, re-blending and product downgrades. Version 8.5 is available immediately. Qualified aspenONE customers can upgrade at no additional cost, AspenTech said.
