SimSci APC 2014 - Avanced Process Control Software
Reducing advanced process control 
implementation time 
up to 50% with 
SimSci APC

The SimSci Webinar Series 2014 
continues Wednesday April 23rd!

Specifically scheduled for Europe: 
8am EST - 1pm London - 2pm Paris - 2pm Italy


SimSci APC 2014 is the easiest to use APC technology on the market. Many of the new features that enhance the ease of use and flexibility of SimSci APC, making it so easy to use that it greatly reduces implementation time. 

SimSci APC greatly extends the capabilities of APC with Director, a powerful calculation language that allows the control engineer to build custom calculations to augment controller functions or add custom supporting functions such as model switching based on a detected change in the operating point of the process.  

Please join us to see the future of advanced process control.

13 years with SimSci - now by Schneider Electric

The other day as I was starting up a conference call, as I have done thousands of times before, when I had a mental block on my user ID and password. I remembered it a few seconds later, but it made me realize, I have had that same login information for almost 13 years.

The ID number is the phone number at my desk at my first office with the company. I keep saying I should change it, but at this point why bother. It made me realize that I have been with the SimSci brand for quite a while.

Since April 23, 2001 to be exact!

As I start my 14th year with the SimSci brand, I wanted to reflect a bit on my 13 years with SimSci:

Field of Dreams, Really?

Guest blogger: Livia Wiley, SimSci Product Marketing Manager

The federal government recently released a study that found Fuels From Corn Waste Not Better Than Gas. When looking at biofuels' emissions from the farm to the tailpipe, the study concludes that it’s very hard to make a biofuel that has a better greenhouse gas impact than gasoline using corn residue. Not impossible, but improbable; thus adding to the contentious debate over alternative fuels.

Whether your fuel source is conventional or unconventional, ask how SimSci can help you design, train, control, and optimize your process and operating environment.

Improve operation with DYNSIM, #SimSci #TechValidate

Customer Survey verified by TechValidate.


About DYNSIM: DYNSIM is part of the Dynamic Simulation Suite from Invensys, assisting in process design, controls checkout, and control system design. This dynamic simulator helps plant management operate in a safe and profitable manner. Its operator training simulator provides safer operation while also improving performance and productivity. One example is using DYNSIM to evaluate flare and relief systems in a plant to raise the safety standard by making sure that the flares can handle the loads as they occur dynamically. DYNSIM is a cost-effective program, reducing the cost of process equipment.

Technical Support: As always, feel free to reach out to your local technical support team for more information.

Since it is Friday - another fun video on Operator Training


About Operator Training: Invensys offers a computer-based training method, Operator Training Simulators (OTS), to help give operators the skills they need to run a process or plant. Refineries and other plants are being forced to rely on inexperienced operators due to the aging workforce. Undertrained employees reduce performance and profitability in a refinery and may also risk the safety of other employees. The aging workforce is moving closer to the age of retirement, making it imperative to train younger, less experienced employees. Invensys offers an Operator Training System to aid refineries in educating inexperienced operators, who will soon be relied upon to operate the refinery and perform operational excellence.
Operators learn the ins and outs of a refinery in this virtual control room. DYNSIM is a model that controls the plant response. Trainees learn how to react appropriately when a similar situation occurs in the actual plant. DYNSIM Checkout is the first process dynamic simulation product designed specifically for control checkout. This solution can validate control system design before it is installed in the plant which eliminates many problems that occur during startup.
