Unique Combination of Robust Process Models and Real-Time Operational Data Delivers Insight into Asset Availability & Operational Constraints

Aspen Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: AZPN), a leading provider of software and services to the process industries, today announced the introduction of a new product suite, aspenONE® Asset Performance Management™ (APM). The new suite expands the aspenONE product portfolio from engineering, manufacturing & supply chain into maintenance to address key business challenges that include process disruptions, low asset availability and unplanned downtime. The aspenONE APM suite will enable companies to optimize their assets throughout the entire plant lifecycle.

Companies in the process industries are faced today with significant macroeconomic uncertainty and ever more complex business and operational challenges, requiring greater focus on operational excellence in order to maximize the return on capital employed. Designed specifically for the process industries, aspenONE Asset Performance Management software provides highly accurate insights into complex process dynamics, diagnosing the root cause of an event to assess the impact on plant equipment and breakdown avoidance, and offers prescriptive, actionable guidance to help mitigate the impact on production.

The aspenONE Asset Performance Management suite will include the Aspen Fidelis Reliability™ product and the Aspen Asset Analytics products in its initial release. Aspen Fidelis Reliability enables customers to use the deep design and process knowledge contained within the aspenONE product portfolio to analyze process reliability, quantify improvement opportunities and optimize the availability of assets. The Aspen Asset Analytics product combines AspenTech’s modeling and simulation and data analytics capabilities to predict specific process problem events and prescribe actions to prevent their occurrence. This product will initially be targeted at a specific set of customers identified by the company until general availability is announced in the future.

The APM suite is anticipated to be further populated with functionality and capabilities organically developed as well as from recent acquisitions, to encompass a set of products and solutions that will capture the significant opportunity available in the maintenance area of process plants.

Join AspenTech at OPTIMIZE™ 2017, April 25 & 26, for announcements about additions to the aspenONE Asset Performance Management suite, and updates about the company’s asset optimization vision and strategy.
