Drive Safety and Profitability

AVEVA Simulation tools provide safe and efficient operations that benefit the plant, the workers, the surrounding community, and the overall profitability of the company. They form the basis for operational analysis, controls checkout, and operator training.

Rise Above the Challenges of Today’s Workforce

Today’s control room operators run mission critical processes across multi-billion dollar businesses where missteps can be very costly in terms of safety, availability, and profitability. This is further compounded by a mobile and ageing workforce. AVEVA’s industry leading Operator Training Simulators (OTS) help companies rise above the dynamic challenges of designing, commissioning, controlling, and operating their process plants safely, reliably, and profitably.

Advanced Simulation Software

Rigorous dynamic simulation and control system emulation for engineering studies.

Dynamic Simulation from Start to Finish

Dynamic simulation is used by many of the leading EPC and operator companies to validate process designs and to optimise capital expenditure by avoiding costly over design. Pre-testing of control logic in the same dynamic environment can reduce commissioning time by several days, and sometimes even weeks.

Dynamic Simulation Improves Design

Clients all over the world use AVEVA Dynamic Simulation Tool to lower capital and operating expenditures, refine process designs, and control system software designs. This lower market risk, improves performance efficiency, and ultimately, profitability.

Controls Checkout Shortens Commissioning Time

The same tool can be used to complete controls checkout prior to startup, thus shortening plant commissioning schedules, increasing process uptime, and optimising process control during transients.

Operator Training Drives Operator Effectiveness

Operator Training Simulators are built within the same environment to enable our clients to drive improved operator competency leading to a dramatic impact on plant availability, plant safety, and ultimately bottom line profitability.

Train Operators to Outperform

Our training portfolio encompasses operator training simulators which provide a unique, one-of-a-kind training experience for many of the crew across the plant.

A Leader in the Control Room, the Board Room, and in the Field

Operator Training Simulators (OTS) provide plant, field, and control room operators, as well as maintenance and HSE personnel with efficient knowledge transfer and skill development in a matter of months, rather than years. A relatively small investment in an OTS can save hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars.

Emulated Control Systems

OTS allow operators to train on a computer in an identical environment to the control room. In addition to a high fidelity dynamic simulation, Operator Training Simulators use emulated controls systems (i.e., Foxboro Control Simulation, Triconex Control Simulation, etc.) to accurately reflect plant controls.

High-Fidelity Plant Model

The high-fidelity dynamic simulation plant model reflects the operations and control responses of the actual plant. Operator Training Simulators tie together the Dynamic Simulation with the emulated controls system to provide safer operation while improving performance and productivity.

Reduce Startup and Commissioning Times

Operator Training Simulators effectively train operators for controls checkout and plant startup, reducing commissioning times significantly. These systems help ensure faster startup times, quicker recovery from process upsets with less equipment stresses, and the ability to correct procedure errors prior to online production.

Optimise Operational Procedures

Operators can manage a refinery in a virtual control room through the use of a DYNSIM Dynamic Simulation model that controls the plant responses. This provides trainees the opportunity to learn how to react appropriately when a similar situation occurs in the actual plant.
