Fundamentals of Aspen Generic Dynamic Optimization Technology
This course will help you prepare for the certification exam and the exam fee is waived with this course. Dynamic Optimization is a new area of economic opportunity in Production Optimization. Aspen GDOT improves overall operating margins by closing the loop between planning/economics objectives and actual operations of process units through real time coordination of several APC applications across a broad envelope.
In this class, you will learn the fundamentals of Aspen GDOT that includes Open Equation (OE) technology, dynamic optimization and typical GDOT applications. Learn how to estimate GDOT benefits, align GDOT with planning and scheduling work processes along with Aspen GDOT implementation (offline and online) and best practices for sustaining benefits of GDOT application.
