Overall Satisfaction with AspenONE Engineering

AspenONE Engineering is currently being used by Process Engineering and Estimating departments within our organization. It is used to perform process simulations and the data from process simulations is then utilized to size and design the individual equipment. It is used to simulate plant wide process equipment. Also ACCE is used in Estimating.
  • User-friendly
  • Works well for defining hypothetical components especially those of crude oil mixtures
  • Can design and rate heat exchanges and air coolers
  • Availability of tutorials
  • It is more costly compared to other process simulators
  • Lack of free training courses
  • Was able to better define the crude oil properties
  • Was able to design and rate heat exchangers and air coolers
  • One stop shop for all process equipment simulations
  • vmg, bre and promax
User-friendly. Can define and estimate close properties of some crude oil mixtures and hypothetical components. Can run some detailed calculations on shell and tube heat exchangers and air-cooled heat exchangers. Not just rating and sizing, but also can perform capital cost estimates. It is a single tool for design, sizing and estimating.
With AspenONE Engineering tool, one can run plant-wide process simulations modules on a case by case basis. It is user-friendly. It can even use the tool to perform some capital cost estimates (using ACCE). It may not be apt for companies which just do standard equipment design and sizing over and over.
