Global warming; protecting the earth; saving resources; and “going green” are all becoming part of our daily routine. Now more than ever, the population is becoming aware of the effects that our actions have on the environment. Corporations and individuals alike are expected to put forth the effort to reduce energy utilization and conserve resources. But is it enough? Of course not, this is just the beginning of a new way of life, a new venture.
As a corporation, going green is much more complex than switching to energy efficient bulbs, especially when the global economy dictates high transportation cost with manufacturers and consumers are located across continents. Moreover, corporations must remain profitable, efficiency has to improve, and stock holders… you get the picture.
Progressive companies are thinking outside the box to implement “green” initiatives using dynamic process simulation. These dynamic tools interact with the daily business model and activities in a way that was thought impossible. As the business environment changes, dynamic simulators adapt to the new constraints helping managers and engineers conceptualize new racking plans, logistic ideas, transportation routes, manufacturing strategies and more.
Green initiatives can have both a negative and a positive effect on the business. Since, going green may require CO2 , NOX , and SO2 emissions monitoring, equipment replacement, energy conservation and others, companies are forced to constantly reevaluate procedures and take the path that both helps the environment and makes business sense.
Environmental responsibility should not mean losing money or going out of business. Dynamic simulators have played a key role in proper layout and equipment selection to increase profitability, and are now being used in conjunction with emission factors and energy utilization.
Why dynamic simulation
? The answer is simple. It is a new tool, built on new technologies, geared to use today’s high speed computers while providing excellent visualization and analysis. From 2D to 3D and from single scenario analysis to multiple scenario analysis, dynamic simulation
allows companies to sustain business excellence while helping to save the environment. Moreover, dynamic simulation
a no-code generation tool
; no need to program the simulator. This advance in technology creates a dynamic environment to allow interaction with the simulator during the simulation. In other words, “on-the-fly
” changes can be made to the model while the simulation is running.
Can you afford to be left behind? When do you start using dynamic simulation
to improve your bottom line? How long can your business wait to improve its efficiencies and gain a competitive edge? The tool is impressive, the actions are yours, don’t wait, be proactive, protect the future.
