Soaring energy prices, global competition, and shortages of skilled labor is resulting in greater pressure on process plants.

Soaring energy prices, global competition, and shortages of skilled labor is resulting in greater pressure on process plants. Process industries across the board, from hydrocarbon production and refining to chemical, pharmaceutical and biotech, are looking for ways to remain profitable, more efficient, and green while meeting regulation and fiduciary liability. The use of third-generation process simulation software is one way industry is
improving efficiency and increasing production, while meeting regulation and oversight in these economic conditions.

In many process plants in North America and Western Europe, aging control systems and automation infrastructure restrict capacity and put operational goals at risk, requiring investments in automation systems and new technology. In developing countries and new "Greenfield" plants, users are compelled to invest in the latest technology to remain competitive long term. However, in both cases, process plants have a zero tolerance for downtime, requiring that automation systems work optimally the first time.

MYNAH Technologies, a global leader in the automated process control industry for simulation, is working closely with partners like Emerson Process Management, Schneider Electric, and others to solve these problems by making third-generation simulation a part of every plant automation project. Just as NASA uses simulation so astronauts can master various space scenarios, the process industries use MiMiC simulation to test their automation systems and train operators offline before they go live on the real process plant, without danger to the plant or personnel.

MYNAH is the first to develop a third-generation simulation platform, providing a scalable, flexible, yet powerful and dynamic solution for automation system testing and operator training. MiMiC was designed so it can be implemented by any process industry user, while still providing accurate simulations and a great return on investment.

By testing the plant's automation system with simulation for normal, abnormal, and upset conditions, the user can verify that the application software has been designed and implemented to meet the
functional needs of the process, EPA and other federal regulations, as well as the testing requirements of validated industries. This improves plant safety, environmental protection, operator competency, overall efficiency, and production.

Substantial return on investment in simulation systems has been proven across all process industries from batch to continuous processes. MiMiC v3's added modeling functionality saves time and money and allows users to create advanced models of complex plants. Don Sengur,
Advanced Simulation Consultant, notes that "MiMiC v3's automatic engineering unit conversions save simulation development and management time by 10%." MiMiC v3 also saves time by improved usability and design with intuitive wizard-driven configurations and powerful data visualization tools.

Third-generation simulation software helps to solve the industry's complex needs and delivers significant results, with minimal risk and investment. Markets will continue to fluctuate and costs will increase. Nonetheless, innovative and responsive industries will use new and greener technologies, such as third-generation process simulation, to improve efficiency, reduce costs, increase production, and stay profitable.
