Aspen PIMS and Aspen PIMS-AO Make fast, accurate, and profitable decisions about plant operations, feedstock selection, market responses, and production decisions Aspen PIMS is the world’s leading petroleum and petrochemical planning system featuring cutting- edge optimization technology. An intuitive interface with enhanced reporting and parametric analysis make it easy to view, analyze, and report alternatives, guiding users to the optimum solution. Since 1984, Aspen PIMS has facilitated better feedstock selection, downtime planning, and risk and inventory management to optimize profitability. Now Aspen PIMS includes assay management, making it easier than ever to add, modify and re-cut assays, helping refinery planners deliver more accurate plans to yield greater profitability. Aspen PIMS Advanced Optimization (PIMS-AO) empowers users with state-of-the-art non-linear functionality and enhanced modeling capabilities. The PIMS-AO model offers the best balance between available feedstocks, product requirements, and process unit capacity, while evaluating a more complete set of input parameters and optimization objectives. The Challenge: Creating Profitable Plans in a Volatile Market To achieve maximum profitability, planners must be able to make fast, accurate, and optimal planning decisions about feedstock selection, process runs, and product mix while taking into account numerous other factors, such as changing market demands and price volatility. The AspenTech Solution: Dynamic Planning for Optimum Results Aspen PIMS is a scalable planning system that helps companies optimize feedstock selection, product slate, plant design, and operational execution. Users can even link a number of single-plant models to generate a complex multi-source, multi-plant, multi-market, multi-period plan. Additionally, Aspen PIMS-AO allows the use of both linear and non-linear modeling and constraints to create an accurate representation of their plants and operations. Users familiar with Aspen PIMS can quickly leverage this functionality to take advantage of its increased modeling and analysis capabilities. Industry-leading Aspen PIMS and Aspen PIMS-AO also share production targets, assay data and sub-models, blend model libraries, optimum recipes, and more with Aspen Petroleum Scheduler to create powerful synergies among planning and operations to reduce margin leakage.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
