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.

Planning for Integrated Refineries and Chemical Plants

As the world's demand for fuels shifts and slows due to various factors such as more fuel efficient and electric vehicles, refiners globally are moving toward a more diversified product mix with focus on chemicals.  The operation of integrated refinery-chemical complexes brings significant synergies but also adds complexity due to the extended scope and multiple interactions.  This training session will focus on capturing the integration benefits from the planning perspective, covering subjects such as connection streams, joint decision variables and the integrated model structure.  Key topics include approaches for building accurate petrochemicals models and their impact on the characterization of the refinery streams exchanged and the modelling of crude distillation and refinery reactors.
