Major industrial challenges addressed

We guide you to efficiency

The use of simulation to design, develop, fine-tune or improve the operation of manufacturing processes has considerable advantages.

This makes it possible to easily and rigorously establish the material and energy balances on a complete process or a simple unit operation. The economic evaluation of CAPEX and OPEX as well as of the environmental impact calculation complete this analysis.

Compared to a more empirical or experimental approach, the modeling approach is:

  • Less costly: allows to carry out “virtual” experiments instead of “real” experiments in lab or on pilot plants which are often expensive in raw materials, staff … when exploring different ways and analyzing the influence of several parameters.
  • Very fast: it becomes possible to easily assess different process configurations, different operating conditions.
  • Safe: critical scenarios (very reactive chemical substances, high pressure and / or temperatures, etc.), emergency stops… can be studied, without risk for the equipment nor the personnel.
  • Innovative: one can easily explore unconventional technologies instead of reproducing on the industrial unit what is done in the lab.

Beyond these economic and operational advantages, the simulation approach allows a deeper understanding of the production process and the sustainability of this knowledge acquired in the form of a process model.

Simulation makes it possible to face, or even anticipate, a changing economic environment. Process modification studies can be done quickly (sensitivity analyzes) to meet new regulations (safety, environment). The impacts linked to new raw materials or to a different quality of products can be quickly estimated and the consequences in terms of investment evaluated.
