Solve More Complex Problems

Address problems that cannot be easily solved with first principles models alone - extend the value of conventional methods to effectively model the most complex processes and assets.

Build Better Models Faster

Empower engineers of all skill levels with Industrial AI to quickly build and deploy accurate models for digital twins, refinery planning and control and optimization using Aspen AI Model Builder™ or directly within AspenTech’s process simulators.

Sustain Accurate Models Longer

Hybrid models provide a better representation of the plant, keeping the model more relevant over a longer period, reducing the effort required to sustain the model.

Improve Predictive Insights

Combine the accuracy of empirical models, the strength of first principles simulations and the power of AI with 40 years of domain expertise for more accurate predictions to guide critical decisions.
