Dear Christina Yes, verily. Aspen needs COMPAQ Visual Fortran. In fact I had problem earlier, as I was using DVF5. X XI dont remember the exact version no. Introduction to Aspen Basic Engineering Zyqad and Database Driven Design. If youre new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed or bookmark this site. You might find the answers to another problem down the road. Also check out for hand picked reference material. Thanks for visiting Trouble with Aspen Basic Engineering, formerly known as Aspen Zyqad This post will help the new user get acquainted with the program. What is Aspen Basic EngineeringZyqadWhat is Database Driven Design Aspen Basic Engineering is one of those database driven productivity tools that are starting to enter the workplace, somewhat along the lines of Intergraph Smart. Plant, Bentley Axsys or Concep. Sys. The basic idea of these database driven programs is great its something Id thought about and wanted years before I even realized that it already existed on the market The idea is your drawings, lists, datasheets, and other documents are all connected and linked together, sharing a single set of information from a single database. So for example, you draw a Process Flow Diagram and add a pump. The pump now exists in the database. You create the pump datasheet and input some data. Now, when you go back to the PFD, the drawings equipment label reaches into the database and the extracts title that you wrote into the datasheet, displaying the datasheets title on the PFD. The equipment list will also pull the info you just typed from the database. This means that after doing datasheets, a properly programmed equipment list is basically automaticAnd because the documents are all linked, if you redesign the pump, you can update all three documents by making the change once in just one place. Saves you time and prevents errors. Process Simulation Using Aspen HYSYS V8. ASPEN PINCH. Issuu is a digital publishing platform that makes it simple to publish magazines, catalogs, newspapers, books, and more online. Easily share your publications and get. Project Overview of Scope of Work Basic Engineering Package for Crude Distillation Unit CDU, Vacuum Distillation Unit VDU and SG Plant for a facility in the. This reference sheet outlines the design process for distillation columns and defines several key design factors in this area. Aspen Basic Engineering, specifically, is geared to Front End Engineering Design FEED1. Because of this focus, Aspen Basic Engineering allows you to import a process simulation, generate a Process Flow Diagram PFD, equipment and instrument datasheets and lists, early cost estimates and heat exchanger designs, and preliminary P IDs and plot plans. You can link it to Smart. Plant if you want to keep using the database driven approach for further work. The upside is huge potential gains in consistency and productivity all your deliverables in the system talk to each other. The downside is a big increase in complexity. The users have to learn new software and templates for their deliverables. A new IT team may be required.

Lets shorten the name of Aspen Basic EngineeringZyqad to ABE. Examples Of Executional Cost Drivers'>Examples Of Executional Cost Drivers. That will save us some time. Disclaimer to My Aspen Basic EngineeringZyqad tips. First, I want to warn you with a disclaimer I am no expert in ABE. Far from it. I barely had the chance to get acquainted with ABE, and now am back in a position where I am not using it. So frankly, there are big gaps in my knowledge, and this post might have an outright mistake or two.

Recently we are facing problem of Tempearature inversion between naphtha draw off crude fractionator column top temperature. In normal condition N. Furthermore, I have only ever used Aspen Basic Engineering V7. I havent used V7. Nevertheless, I still wanted to write this post. Why For one very simple reason outside of Aspentechs own site, there isliterally no help I can find on the Internet for Aspen Basic Engineering. My own troubles filled me with a desire to help the total beginner in ABE find their footing. Therefore I will proceed with this article, despite being on very shaky ground as an author here. OK, enough preamble, lets get started with the meat of the article. I will assume that you will read this post in conjunction with the program manuals. Help from Aspentechs site. If you have an Aspentech support account, click here for the main Aspen Basic Engineering Page. Here are the highlights for learning ABE What are the sub programs that make up ABEAdministration Set up and manage a workspace, a database that contains a project or group of related projects. Administration also controls who can view a workspace and what rights they have to view or modify documents. Explorer Similar to windows explorer. View the equipment, streams, and other files in a workspace. You can use it to open datasheets, modify stream data, find drawings, rename equipment, etc. A few important tasks are done here to set up the overall project. Drawing Editor Create and view engineering drawings. Most useful for PFDs. You can also make Preliminary P IDs, Plot Plans, and Utility Drawings. Datasheet Editor Create and edit equipment datasheets and equipment lists and similar documents like instrumentation listsdatasheetsClass Library Editor A class is a collection of attributes data that the ABE model holds together. E. g. a pump class holds a set of pump attributes like capacity, rated flow, etc. By default, ABE comes with many classes, and ways to let programs like Hysys, Datasheet Editor, etc. You can use the editor to make new classes or edit existing classes. You can add things like new units of measure, referenced sub libraries of data, etc. Basically, the CLE determines what elements exist inside of ABE for you to use. Excel Datasheet Generator The Datasheet Editor can export a filled out ABE datasheet as a series of ABE files, so that you can pass it to other users of ABE who cannot view your workspace. Using Excel Datasheet Generator, you can turn these ABE export files into a single filled out Excel file to share to people who may not have ABE at all. Datasheet Definer Use this to build new datasheets or modify existing ones. You use Excel to do some of the work. Graphics Definer Use this to set up custom symbols, labels, borders, and tables for your engineering drawings. Required to customize material balance tables. Rules Editor ABE has rules, which are Visual Basic programs. The rules can be automatic or be special routines that one calls on manually. In future versions of ABE this will use the programming language VB. Symbols Replication It seems like this lets you download an ABE drawing symbol library from a server to make a copy on your local computer I couldnt find it. Bridge Interface The Bridge tool lets ABE talk to MS Excel and MS Word. One possible use instead of writing ABE rules, you can use the Bridge tool to leverage an Excel calculation sheet. You can have ABE pass data to Excel, do a calculation in Excel, and then pass the calculation results back to ABE. Windows Xp Pro Sp3 Ultra Lite Ita Music more. Costing Interface Pass data to and from ABE and Aspen Economic Adviser aka Aspen Icarus. I dont have Icarus and so I never tried the costing interface. Based on the V7. 2 patch notes, it sounds like it used to be difficult, but Aspentech is improving the ease of use Simulation Importer Use this to map data from an Aspen. Plus or Hysys or PRO II simulation into the streams and equipment in your ABE model. Thermal Design Link to Aspentech or HTRI heat exchanger design programs. You can import data from ABE to start a design, or export a design to ABE to fill in a datasheet. This worked really well for me. Smart. Plant There are tools to link ABE with a Smart. Plant database via Smart. Plant foundation. Training. Everyone working with ABE ought to learn explorer, datasheet editor, and drawing editor to be able to make and view documents. Simulation importer is a must for simulator people. Someone or a small group needs to be able to get into the guts of the database and run the other tools, to set templates up for the average users.
