Discover What’s New in aspenONE® Advanced Process Control V10!
aspenONE Advanced Process Control (APC) V10 contains new functionality that keeps models accurate across the entire operating range. Additionally, Smart Tune has been enhanced to provide more flexibility, and improvements were made in Aspen DMC3 Builder™ to further simplify project workflow.
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.
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.
Introducing Smart Tune - A New Aspen DMC3 Engine
Aspen DMC3 Smart Tune technology empowers users to make APC controllers more agile and easy to setup by simplifying tuning and configuration. The intelligent solver in Smart Tune enables you to configure economic objectives directly instead of tuning cost factors. This approach combined with a web based view provides a much greater insight into controller strategy.
Introducing Aspen DMC3 Builder
Introducting Aspen DMC3 Builder, an integrated platform used to build and deploy all APC controllers from start to finish. Improves the APC workflow, increases efficiency and preserves process knowledge.
Aspen DMC3 Smart Tune Demo
Compares the traditional method of tuning a controller to Smart Tune which allows users to directly specify operational objectives. Breaks down how the new algorithm works through animations and summarizes the benefits: reduce efforts and complexity, quickly adapt controller to changing economic conditions, process changes or model updates, easily simulate, troubleshoot and modify controller strategy online and increase operator acceptance and controller uptime.

Demo showing a controller before and after Robust Control. Turning on Robust Control stabilizes a controller for a temporary period until the model can be updated to reflect true plant behavior.
See How Eni Rapidly Develops New Controllers Using Adaptive Process Control Technology
Adaptive Process Control is primarily recognized for streamlining APC maintenance, however it is also very useful in new controller development. Eni shares their story on how they used Adaptive Process Control to build new APC applications faster and more efficiently than traditional methods, allowing them to achieve stable behavior in the presence of large model mismatch. "Seed" models were used to rapidly deploy controllers and accrue benefits immediately, all while minimizing disruption to operations.
Simplify Controller Tuning using Aspen DMC3 Smart Tune
Overview and demo from AT experts on Smart Tune- an enhanced optimization algorithm that simplifies the tuning and configuration workflow. Smart Tune allows users to directly specify objectives rather than enduring the complicated tuning process.
