Aspen PIMS™ Model Review
Aspen Technology's PIMS™ LP modeling system has long been the de-facto standard in the refining industry. The explosive growth in the performance of personal computers has enabled an increasing trend towards PIMS™ models with more complex structures. While these more complex models often offer elegant solutions to problems that could not be easily addressed in the past, it is our experience that many may contain undetected structural deficiencies that are not easily undersood by the novice or intermediate user. Therefore, any model can benefit from a periodic review by outside experts. Using our standard Aspen PIMS™ expertise, our PIMS™ consultants can review your LP Model and identify and correct structural deficiencies with the objective of improving model performance and solution reliability.
