Multi-Period Refinery Modeling with Aspen PPIMS

Learn how to build and analyze a multi-period LP models. Optimize your operating variables from period-to-period by identifying inventory holding costs and present value factors. Transfer inventory from period-to-period. Control blending recipes across multiple periods.

Audience:

Participants will typically know how to use Aspen PIMS but would like a more detailed understanding of the inner workings of the Aspen PIMS system and would like to review examples of how to solve more difficult problems
