Supply chain software

KBC’s leading supply chain software can turn production plans into an executable end-to-end schedule that accounts for process, tank-farm and logistical constraints. Visual MESA Supply Chain Scheduling (VM-SCS) enables you to maximize utilization of your assets at minimum logistical costs.

Improve your supply chain management with KBC's supply chain software

VM-SCS is a robust, agile and user-friendly scheduling tool that facilitates execution of the optimum production plan and offers multi-user collaboration via a web-based interface.

Covering your entire end-to-end supply chain network, our innovative supply chain management software creates an actionable schedule, generating reports on deviations and offering comprehensive scenario planning. It has an in-built engine that embeds business rules and protocols to allow for full automation and supply chain optimization.

VM-SCS (supply chain scheduling) allows operators to:
● Minimize quality giveaway.
● Minimize deviation from production plans.
● Reduce use of costly blend components
● Comply with governmental, regulatory and environmental requirements.
● Reduce demurrage costs.

Further benefits of supply chain optimization through our products and services

Take control of your entire supply chain scheduling and supply chain management processes. VM-SCS enables you to manage all elements of the chemical and hydrocarbon supply chain, including crude oil nominations, ships and jetties, pipeline and tank yard operations, feedstock and product blending.

Early indicators of deviations are identified and monitored in real-time in the same simulation environment by our supply chain software, which guides scheduling and production accounting processes.

Our supply chain optimization software also offers a powerful scheduler interface which provides an advanced and dynamic visual environment, including Gantt charts, process graphics, blending grids, tank volumes and process flowsheets.

Integrated end-to-end supply chain simulation

A petrochemical complex in South East Asia required a tool that was able to represent the entire supply chain from raw materials receipt to products dispatch. This comprised of over 50 tanks, a complex processing scheme of more than 30 process units and receipts and shipments through pipelines, ships and trucks. Find out how our supply chain software greatly improved this complex.

Simulation and optimization

Our simulation and optimization software goes hand-in-hand with robust business processes that support operational excellence. Our thermodynamics is the upstream industry standard and our refinery reactor models are the benchmark against which all other models are compared.

Production planning software

The combination of Chevron’s PETRO LP (linear programming) technology with KBC’s world-class rigorous simulation and supply chain management technologies and services brings a new dimension to molecular management and value chain optimization for oil refinery and petrochemical plants.

Production and yield accounting

Visual MESA Production Accounting software captures all necessary information for the calculation of inventories and material movements in a given period. It is a must-have tool for mass loss detection in complex industrial environments.

Process unit data reconciliation

Visual MESA Production Accounting (VM-PA) allows engineers to build mass balance reconciliation models for closing individual process unit mass balances. It integrates the production accounting and engineering worlds so that each use the same single data source. The result is better engineering improvement opportunities and accounting balance for the organization.
