New version simulation software

New user interface maximises simulator’s effectiveness, reduces learning curve and drives productivity excellence

Invensys Operations Management has released the newest version of its SimSci-Esscor® PRO/II™ software, a steady-state process simulator used to design, analyse and improve chemical processes and help industrial users achieve productivity excellence.

“Process engineers today have more and more demands on their time,” said Joseph McMullen, SimSci-Esscor PRO/II product manager, Invensys Operations Management. “Version 9.0 of our PRO/II software includes a powerful user interface and a host of new features designed to make the application more customisable, which significantly reduces the learning curve for new users and makes existing users more effective. Key productivity improvements include conditional formatting to readily identify different process stream properties; customisable tabs that allow easy sorting of unit operations by type; new dockable windows; and improved toolbars, which provide faster access to a broader range of selections and data. The software’s rigorous simulation capabilities extend the functionality of our InFusion Enterprise Control System, enabling real-time decision making and collaboration across people, processes and assets.”

Version 9.0 of the SimSci-Esscor PRO/II software also lowers the cost of ownership by supporting Microsoft App-V for application virtualisation, allowing better use of existing computer hardware resources. Simulation capabilities have also been enhanced through a significant update of the thermodynamic correlations, including a link to the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Reference Fluid Thermodynamic and Transport Properties (REFPROP) application. The database provides critical property values needed to evaluate fluids and optimise related equipment and processes.

“Users of SimSci-Esscor PRO/II 9.0 software will benefit from the many improvements we have made,”
McMullen added. “Experienced users will be able to readily customise their applications to better match their solution needs and their computing environments, and new users will become effective users faster. In today’s challenging economy, this type of powerful simulation software is gaining importance, ensuring that processing companies optimise their operations and maximise the return on their assets to achieve overall operational excellence.”
