Honeywell UniSim Design Challenge 2013

The Challenge: Optimum Process Designs

The oil and gas production, gas processing, petroleum refining and chemicals industries must optimize their process designs to achieve more reliable and stable operations. Optimum designs must be quickly identified with minimum risk of rework so that companies remain competitive and maximize theirbusiness performance. Process engineers are challenged with making timely business decisions while meeting the business objectives of designing and operating efficient, safe and profitable plants. The Opportunity: Linking Business Objectives and Process Design Process modeling is a powerful technology that enables decision makers and engineers to link critical business objectives to process design, thus enabling true plant lifecycle modeling.

The major business benefits of process modeling using UniSim Design Suite include:

  • Utilizing ‘what-if’ scenarios and sensitivity analyses to identify the optimal design based on operating and business targets
  • Ensuring that process equipment is properly specified to deliver desired product throughput and specifications
  • Evaluating the effect of feed changes, upsets and equipment downtime on process safety, reliability and profitability
  • Monitoring equipment performance against expectations
  • Improving plant control, operability and safety using dynamic simulation models of planned and existing plants

The Solution: UniSim Design Suite

UniSim Design Suite provides an intuitive and interactive process modeling solution that enables engineers to create steady-state and dynamic models for plant and control design, performance monitoring, troubleshooting, operational improvement, business planning and asset management.

UniSim Design Suite helps process industries improve productivity and profitability throughout the plant lifecycle. The powerful simulation and analysis tools, real-time applications and the integrated approach to engineering solutions provided by UniSim Design Suite enables companies to improve designs, optimize production and enhance decision-making. These models may be leveraged into advanced training and optimization solutions provided by the UniSim Operations and UniSim Optimization suites.
