Process simulation – connection between model and reality

A simulation is a virtual image of a real system for the purpose of making predictions about the real system’s behavior under given boundary conditions.

Prerequisite for modelling a system is sufficient information to describe the relevant functions of the system.

Process simulation therefore is a valuable tool in the early phases of process development.

It can also be an effective aide in optimizing existing processes.

Siemens EC offers support in the following fields of simulation:

  • Process simulation, steady-state and dynamic

  • Material flow optimization

  • Operator training systems (OTS)
