Cloud Access Has Arrived

AVEVA Engineering software provides solutions to improve engineering efficiency for industrial processes. Engineering software is used for process design, simulation and training throughout the plant lifecycle. The benefits of using these software tools in an industrial setting have many proven benefits. However, like anything, there can be drawbacks that prevent companies from reaping all the benefits. In large organizations with many users, deployment on a broad scale can prove to be tedious. In smaller companies, the license cost of 1 or 2 users can be prohibitive. Regardless of the size of your business, maintaining the proper hardware can be a hassle.

Whether you are a small company or a large company, we can solve your problems with the power of the cloud.

You can now start by accessing PRO/II Process Engineering, DYNSIM Dynamic Simulation, and Operator Training Simulators in the cloud using Microsoft Azure.

  • PRO/II Process Engineering optimizes plant performance by improving process design and operational analysis and performing engineering studies. Designed to deliver rigorous heat and material balance calculations for a wide range of chemical processes, PRO/II Process Engineering offers a wide variety of thermodynamic models to virtually every industry.
  • Dynamic Simulation is a comprehensive, dynamic process simulator that enables users to meet and beat the dynamic challenges of designing and operating a modern process plant safely and profitably DYNSIM assists in process design, controls checkout, and control checkout and control system design.
  • Operator Training Simulators (OTS) are advanced computer-based training tools that help give operators the skills they need to run a process or plant. Operators learn how to manage a refinery in this virtual control room through the use of a DYNSIM Dynamic Simulation model that controls the plant responses.

Imagine experiencing all the benefits of engineering software without the headache of deployment and hardware maintenance.

Imagine not having to worry about a changing user base. Imagine not having to deal with install or deployment issues.

Cloud benefits include:

  • Increased Accessibility: Accessible anywhere and anytime with an Internet connection
  • Enhanced Availability: No system maintenance requirements from the client side
  • Highly Scalable for additional users on demand
  • Lower Cost of Ownership: Limited maintenance overhead & constant availability of the latest version for company and project needs
