Simplifying APC Tuning and Configuration
In depth look at the Smart Tune engine- The new Sequential Multi-Objective Optimization (SMO) technology is a step change from traditional APC optimizers. The new algorithm eliminates any LP cost tuning by enabling users to explicitly specify the APC controllers’ objectives.
The Aspen DMC3 Difference
Learn how Aspen DMC3 enables you to shape the economics of APC solutions to meet business objectives and modify the behavior of the controller to fit the needs of any phase of the lifecycle.
Five Keys to a Successful APC Program
The success of an APC program is measured in many ways, but the overall success is integral to achieving operational excellence. For example, an APC program should safely capture benefits during testing, capture all the potential benefits with aggressive full scope controllers, and create an APC culture and organization. Download this white paper to learn more about these concepts, as well as several others, which are key to a successful APC program.
Capturing APC Benefits from Secondary Units
Why APC should be implemented on secondary units. Includes sections on environmental emissions control, fuel gas networks control and optimization, sulphur complex control and steam networks control.
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.
Aspen DMC3 Robust Tutorial
Learn how the robust control functionality contributes to a useful reduction in maintenance cost and helps extend times between revamps for APC controllers.
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.
Protect Profits and Prevent Margin Loss in Downstream
With downstream margins globally close to a 10-year low, according to S&P Global Platts Analytics and ExxonMobil, companies need to find new areas for improvement. Current digital solutions offer ways plants can move beyond mechanical and equipment investments to drive greater profits. Download this white paper that outlines high impact operational improvements that deliver immediate results.
