О курсе

This is an advanced course for experienced PIMS users. Learn to debug recursion structure and problems. Address Mixed Integer Situations using Aspen PIMS MIP capabilities. Apply Aspen Blend Model Library and other blending techniques to model rigorous blending. Troubleshoot modeling and convergence problems and learn PIMS?s non-linear functionalities to perform Solution Analysis. Manage local optima problems.

Для кого этот курс

The participant should have a good understanding of optimization and Aspen PIMS. Typically, participants have many years of optimization experience and are concerned with the more detailed aspects of the system. Many participants have taken RPA101 Aspen PIMS: Introduction to Refinery Planning and RPA201 Aspen PIMS: Solving Refinery Planning Problems and want to learn about additional techniques used to model difficult planning problems.
