Aspen Technology and Hexagon Announce New Collaboration to Accelerate Digital Transformation in Process Industries
Companies can speed transition from document-based to digital workflows, improving both productivity and quality of outcomes across the lifecycle
As the first to market with a fully digital design and engineering process with integrated economic evaluation, AspenTech and Hexagon PPM suites align to help customers better manage the financial risks of complex projects, which is a major challenge today. The combined capabilities can accelerate digital transformation and enable deployment of best-in-class integrated solutions from two leading software providers.
Working together, AspenTech and Hexagon PPM can provide a more complete digital twin, inclusive of both the plant infrastructure and the chemical processes occurring within that physical infrastructure, to allow operators to make better decisions that maximize throughput, quality and uptime. AspenTech’s planning, scheduling and reliability software, coupled with the Hexagon PPM expertise for the detailed engineering phase of facility and plant design, will help operators more easily leverage engineering models during operations, obtain the most from their investments and allow them to respond better to changing market conditions.
The announcement came during the keynote speech of Hexagon PPM president
Pietri said, “This collaboration will allow customers the flexibility to choose solutions from market leading providers across the full lifecycle, from the design phase into the systems that operate and maintain a plant. Engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firms and owner-operators will be able to accelerate their digital transformation with complete confidence, supported by best-in-class solutions.”
Stenberg said, “Based on our assessments and engagements with joint customers, we are confident there is potential to impact both project and operational efficiency. Aligning project costs to decisions early in the design process reduces budget and schedule risk. Post-project, the combination of predictive maintenance and advanced controls with our information management solutions translates into higher-quality plants that will perform better over their lifetime.”
Customers expressed support for this new initiative:
