In enterprises where another project is tailored to the needs of the client rather than using basic tools. And where the estimate requires comprehensive cost buckets for production operations. When there is a large amount of purchasing history to enter into AspenONE Engineering in order for it to provide reliable projections. Standard equipment manufacturing enterprises are not well suited. Also, because this instrument requires time, when there are time limitation and resource or human limitations.

There are really only 2 tools in industry that have the function of geoSCOUT (the other being Accumap.) Both are similar. I'd recommend geoSCOUT for project/area specific work. I'd recommend Accumap for start-up companies who are trying to establish their 'playground' as it's easier to navigate province wide assets, whereas new maps are required for geoSCOUT.

  • Cross sections are not always that visually appealing. Cross sections from Petrel look much better.

We began assessing several tools when we began estimating for a full process plant or various styles of equipment. We also investigated implementing an ERP system used by the sales and item engineering departments.

Alternatives Considered
Aspen Technology
Again answering from the ACCE perspective (Estimating tool) - Previously when we did estimates for simple equipment we had used excel estimates and lotus reporting. However, as we started estimating for an entire process plant or various style of equipment, we had started evaluating various tools. We had also considered using an ERP system that is utilized by Purchasing and Product Engineering teams, however, ACCE seemed a better fit for the amount of detailed estimating needed. And the robustness and various options available made us select this tool.

Accumap is also a similar tool. The two tools contain the same information, although geoSCOUT has extra modules which have been somewhat useful. For the most part, engineers pull raw production, completions and facilities data. geoSCOUT is better for visualizing plans and allowing toggling of different considerations using the layer manager.

Return on Investment
Aspen Technology
  • Investment apart from the cost of tool, is time - It is very time taking to obtain the results required
  • We are being trained by a professional consultant on ACCE, and yet to see the ROI
  • Detailed estimates as needed by Product Engineering is a plus
