Course Objective

This class is focused on data discovery and using analytical tools in aspenONE Process Explorer to identify under-performing units and determine the reasons for the performance shortfall.  


  • Process and Production Engineers interested in benchmarking and performance management of production assets
  • Process and Production Engineers interested in process problem forensics 


  • Use data discovery tools to speed the job of identifying and accessing the data needed for benchmarking and analysis
  • Learn how to incorporate context in analysis to improve problem solving
  • Learn how to use ad-hoc events for analyzing continuous processes and performance issues
  • Use Event plots and alternative assessment tools to monitor production records and equipment performance

MES021: Process Analysis Using aspenONE Process Explorer

  • View the continuous process data in Standard Trend plots and XY plots to determine the relationship between the process variables
  • Determine the Cost of Deviation between the Actual and Target Key process variables using a KPI chart and record comments when there is a considerable deviation
  • Overlay process time series data with product characteristics, alarms, events, comments and annotations to create analysis context
  • Evaluate batch cost variability using Event plots
