Production planning

What we offer

Our portfolio of software tools has been designed for you. They are based on our industry heritage solving the same problems as you. Our simulation software provides the insights you need to make the right decisions at the right time, throughout the asset lifecycle. Our execution tools support your people in flawlessly implementing work processes and actions.

Our products and services

Your production planning will benefit from better accuracy, improved economic results, greater acceptance by operations and a more sustainable model.

  • Petro-SIM uses rigorous chemical and physical science to accurately model refinery and petrochemical processes and is used extensively for both process design and operating performance management
  • VM-SCS allows plant personnel to schedule and simulate operations on an integrated supply chain topological model, easily identifying possible imbalances between interdependent operations
  • VM-PA generates mathematical reconciliation models to detect losses, custody transfer errors and data input errors in support of mass loss detection leading practices
  • PETRO uses distributed recursive LP technology to give advice to traders on optimal bids for feedstocks. It processes thousands of variables to arrive at the most valuable operations parameters and the most economic mix of products to produce, buy or sell.

In combination, Petro-SIM will act as a digital twin of the plant, continuously connected to real-time data sources to faithfully maintain a calibrated accurate model of the plant.  From time to time it will check the linear models in PETRO and automatically update them to match the linearized current operating envelope. Planning scenarios from PETRO based on up-to-date linear models will output to VM-SCS which will validate feasible and optimal schedule taking account of all upcoming commitments and constraints.
