Soaring energy prices, global competition and shortages of skilled workers have all taken their toll on processing plants, and their ability to efficiently and effectively grow operations. These market dynamics often combine with aging control systems and automation infrastructure restrictions to put operational goals at risk, requiring investments in new automation technology.
However, a processing plant’s heightened level of focus on limiting downtime, keeping workers safe and being compliant with legislative regulations have produced an increased need for simulation software, and its profit-saving potential.
The major benefits of implementing such platforms include:
Essentially, simulation software can help processing plants reduce costs in a number of areas, which helps increase overall profitability and competitiveness.
