Enhance plant performance and profitability with equation-based optimization
AVEVA Process Optimization is a cutting-edge technology that enables rigorous online modeling and real-time optimization for improved plant performance. By using first-principle simulation, it generates precise operating information that empowers operators to make informed decisions quickly.
Optimization is the crucial intersection where operations and economics meet, and with AVEVA Process Optimization, you can sharpen plant performance and increase profits by up to $0.05 to $0.25 per barrel throughput. Our solution typically pays for itself in a year or less.
AVEVA Process Optimization goes beyond pure process optimization, providing refinery/plant performance monitoring, troubleshooting, and rigorous engineering studies to enhance your operations even further.
Process Optimization uses real-time process and economic data to determine set points that guarantee maximum operating profit while satisfying all regulatory requirements.
Scalable and Maintainable Optimization Solution
Designed specifically to address the need for real-time, nonlinear optimization of continuous processes, Process Optimization uses real-time process and economic data to determine set points that guarantee maximum operating profit while satisfying all regulatory requirements.
Process Optimization employs first principle simulation techniques with proven data reconciliation and optimization technologies to provide maximum, sustainable plant performance, and increased return on investment.
Evaluation of “What if” Scenarios
Process Optimization provides a Microsoft Excel-based and flowsheet-based interface to enable offline “what-if” scenarios, using precise models that represent your plant’s actual operating conditions.
Process Optimization models can also be used for procurement planning, and for evaluating the benefits of process changes.
Automated Optimization and Reporting
Process Optimization’s Real-time System (RTS) provides an integrated, graphical scheduling environment that enables users to automate optimization and reporting. Using RTS, users can easily define complex event sequences for closed loop optimization without user intervention.
Task sequences can be scheduled to run daily, weekly, or at any preset interval. They can also be dynamically controlled when specific conditions, such as reaching steady state, are met.
Results Visualisation and Key Performance Indicators
Process Optimization’s industry-proven results can be visualised quickly using embedded web page reporting and via the Intelligence application for web-based dashboards — displaying key performance indicators and other important operations information.
Integrated Modelling Makes Optimization Easy
Process Optimization is the only complete process optimization solution that integrates heat and material balance rigorous simulation, data reconciliation, gross error detection, economic optimization, and performance monitoring into a single user environment. Its online modelling and optimization capabilities utilise industry-proven thermodynamic methods and data to generate highly accurate operating information. This enables managers to react quickly and precisely to changes in market pressures, energy costs, and equipment performance. Process Optimization’s integrated interface and drag-and-drop functionality minimises the user’s learning curve and accelerates real economic benefits. Its equation-based optimization engine is unmatched in modelling large processes.
