May 14, 2012

Enhanced Search Functionality Makes it Easier for Aspen Plus® and Aspen HYSYS® Software Users to Optimize and Troubleshoot their Manufacturing Assets
Burlington, MA -

Aspen Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: AZPN), a leading provider of software and services to the process industries, announced a new release of aspenONE software that delivers another industry first in process optimization.  For the first time, process engineers can now compare simulation results to historical and real-time data on the simulation flowsheet.  This unique new functionality makes it easier for Aspen Plus and Aspen HYSYS users to optimize and troubleshoot their manufacturing assets.

Aspen Plus and Aspen HYSYS can now optimize data discovery and analysis to help make better decisions.  They can find plant data based on characteristics including tag types and tag attributes.  Search delivers the right information faster, with results organized by relevance and previews available for all historical attributes.

Process engineers can find models, tags, documents and data in seconds, even if they have not used Aspen Plus or Aspen HYSYS software before.  They can search by features, components, reaction, unit operation types and more.

Search functionality in Aspen Plus and Aspen HYSYS also helps companies build modeling communities.  Models remain current because it is easier to find, connect and collaborate with model authors.  This delivers continuous value across the organization, capturing and preserving institutional knowledge.

The new search functionality in Aspen Plus and Aspen HYSYS is available immediately.  For more information, visit
