A new approach to foster the application of simulation technologies in process industries is the Workshop on Process Simulation. Its kick-off meeting took place in Dortmund´s technology park on 2015/6/10.

Fairly a dozen participants arrived from Germany and Europe, among them represantatives of BASF, Bayer Technology Services, CSL Behring, Chemgineering, and INOSIM. A relaxed atmosphere gave the background for discussing current topics all around process simulation.

It became evident that the practitioners from industry are highly interested in best practice examples and the discussion of typical tasks. As a concrete agenda for the following meetings, the workshop scheduled:

  • Project management of simulation projects
  • Selection of appropriate simulation tools
  • Best practice in simulation model generation
  • Data management and interfaces
  • Development of methods for the optimization of processes and plants

Torsten Hellenkamp of INOSIM, who lead the meeting, finally summed up positively: “The first meeting of the Workshop on Process Simulation has been the success that we had hoped for. It turned out that, in everyday practise, our participants have high demand for professionalization by the application of simulation technologies.

In the future, the Workshop on Process Simulation will get together at different places in Germany twice a year. The workshop is meant as an open board for interested engineers and persons in charge of production. If you would like to join, you are very welcome.
