K-Spice® Design allows the user to carry out process, control and safety analysis for the whole plant in a realistic dynamic behavior. This product allows the user to build new models and to carry out configuration changes to existing models. In addition it is possible to build and run scenarios for automated operations and study cases. Customized thermodynamic methods can be defined and maintained, and the model developed here can be utilized throughout the whole Life Cycle. The models built here will be the basis for efficient execution of dynamic simulation runs for detailed process and control design verification.

Features – process design verifcation
