Develop FEED Packages using Aspen Basic Engineering

Course Id:  EBE101   |   Duration:  2.00 day(s)   |   CEUs Awarded:  1.4   |   Level:  Introductory


Course Objective

Learn how to conduct engineering studies and projects using a central data repository with controlled and simultaneous data access. Eliminate clerical transcription and errors through instant update of changes in data to all users viewing the data. Gain an understanding of how the various modules of Aspen Basic Engineering are structured.

Course Overview

Learn how to use Aspen Basic Engineering End-User Tools to improve collaboration and global project execution using an integrated workflow approach.

Benefits

  • Conduct engineering studies and projects using a central data repository with controlled and simultaneous data access
  • Eliminate clerical transcription and errors through instant update of  changes in data to all users viewing the data
  • Gain an understanding of how the various modules of Aspen Basic Engineering are structured
  • Progress and monitor drawings and datasheets through issue/revision cycles

Audience

Engineers or project personnel who will be using Aspen Basic Engineering as an everyday tool for their work.

Approach

  • Instruction on basic topics, using version 11 software
  • Discussion about the general approach and the key elements of the software
  • Demonstrations of features
  • Instructor-guided exercises
  • Hands-on workshops that apply learned concepts
  • Detailed course notes

Prerequisites

  • A background in process/project engineering is helpful but not required
  • Any experience with drafting tools is useful

Subsequent Courses

  • Students who need to learn how to configure Aspen Basic Engineering to meet specific organizational and work practice needs should plan to attend EBE201 Aspen Basic Engineering: Project and Administrator Configuration, which is typically scheduled directly after this course
