Schneider rolls-out SimSci Central. 50 years of simulation.

Web and cloud technologies bring ‘modern’ user experience to process industries.

Schneider Electric has unveiled SimSci SimCentral for process industries. The platform is designed to help the oil and gas/refining and other verticals engineer their processes across the entire lifecycle. SimCentral is used at the design stage, for process improvement and to ‘simplify modeling complexity.’ SimCentral leverages web and cloud technologies to deliver a ‘modern user experience.’

Loïc Coyot, with WorleyParsons, an early adopter of the tool, reports that ‘SimCentral removes complexity from engineering process modeling and lets us deliver more value and respond faster to our client’s needs. A unified lifecycle simulator means that a model can be taken through all stages of the plant lifecycle, including design, training and operations.’

SimSci is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The first distillation simulation program was released in January 1967. Watch the 50th anniversary video here.
