Minimizing losses in utilization with an optimized plan

INEOS was using a production simulation tool called DISPO to inform production planners of possible constraint violations such as tank overflows, feedstock or product shortages, and the necessary turnarounds of production units. Driven by technology changes and changing business requirements, INEOS Köln started looking for a new toolset to meet their needs and support future developments. A pilot study was conducted in AIMMS to model INEOS’ production process. The study resulted in a new DISPO App that was ready to use within a few months. An additional App for steam cracking optimization was developed in AIMMS.
