System Optimisation

Are you getting the most out of your system for the lowest possible cost? With the aid of state-of-the-art modelling and simulation techniques, we can help you optimize your process.

Why optimisation?

How to balance development and operational costs with expected performance and revenue? This is the basic question in optimisation. Investments to increase system performance may or may not turn out to be worth the cost. Safetec can help provide a basis for such difficult decisions. These decisions can come in an early phase, when there are different design alternatives. Or they can come in a later phase when upgrades, expansion or other further investments are considered. There may be bottlenecks in your system, with associated potential for a significant increase in performance at only a small cost. Or there may be over-capacity where cost cutting represents little or no effect on performance.

The benefits of modelling

If the system or relevant part of the system has not yet been developed, it may be difficult to assess these issues before it is built and put into operation. At this point it may be too late to realize that the design was not optimal after all. Redesigning a system which has already been built or running a sub-optimal system is the costly consequence. The cheaper alternative is to create a model of the system in advance, covering all relevant aspects. Simulation runs will then reveal what we can expect from a future system which the model represents. Simulation technology has advanced to a point where very detailed and accurate models can be developed, unknown to many operators in industries which could benefit significantly from these services.

What we offer

We can perform process or system optimisation in a wide range of industrial areas. Possibilities and our experience include, but are not limited to:

  • Drinking water and waste water systems
  • Manufacturing processes
  • Power grids
  • Oil and gas supply chains
  • Transportation systems (rail, road, shipping)
  • Airport logistics

We are aware of the fact that the results of the model are dependent on the model assumptions and input. We make sure to collaborate with you to understand the system. In addition we perform sensitivity analyses to evaluate the effect of changes in model input on the results. This will provide you with a better understanding of your system dynamics.
