      Introductory
      Monitor Distillation Column Operation to Predict and Prevent Failures

      Process industries around the world are losing billions of dollars due to unplanned downtime and off-spec production.

      Aspen Online Column Analytics AAA102
      Introductory
      Early Failure Detection using Pattern Matching and Root Cause Analysis and Empirical Modeling Techniques

      Despite spending millions on preventive maintenance and risk-based inspection techniques, unplanned process disruptions and asset downtime continue to plague every company’s process optimization efforts.

      Industry studies have shown that up to 82% of all failures cannot be avoid using these techniques since they are considered “random”, meaning they don’t follow a traditional time-based wear or usage failure pattern.  The result is that these “random” failures are costing the global process industry $20 Billion annually.

      What makes solving this unplanned disruptions and downtime problem so challenging is the dynamic nature of production process.  With thousands of variations occurring simultaneously within the process it is nearly impossible to predict exactly what patterns or trends will lead to unplanned events, impacting asset performance.

      Combining deep process design expertise with real-time big data and machine learning Aspen APM continually monitors and optimizes asset performance at the equipment, process and plant levels. 
      It uses a suite of integrated risk, process and performance analytics solutions to predict when and why future disruptions and downtimes will occur and to prescribe responses to proactively avoid issue from occurring.
