Process Simulation Optimizes Bioengineering   Bioengineering provides an extensive spectrum for the production of natural active ingredients. With their partially outstanding properties in pharmacy or cosmetics, these substances are offering a steadily rising market potential. But in life sciences, the road from production to the final user is not always straight. When an ingredient is produced biotechnologically, often it has to be separated from a complex mixture of other substances, followed by elaborate filtration. During filtration, regularly big amounts of waste and effluent occur. Also the energy expenditure which is necessary for the production often becomes critically high.
INOSIM process simulation software for the development and optimization of biotechnological processes allows a forecast of mass and energy balances based on little experimental data. Thus in process development, or while improving existing processes, alternative filtration steps can be evaluated anticipatory. By being able to look at the complete procedure with the help of the simulation software, you gain good chances of developing resource-saving process ideas and to increase the output of the production.

The functional range of the software includes:

  • Generation of mass and energy balances for complete production processes
  • Procedural calculation of single process steps
  • Analysis of process-comprehensive interdependencies
  • Evaluation of alternative process ideas
  • Scale-up support

A press report (only in German) about the role of INOSIM process simulation software in bioengineering is available at prozesstechnik online.

INO­SIM Gantt dis­plays your plant´s al­lo­ca­tions, to­ge­ther with the pro­ces­ses in­vol­ved, by a Gantt dia­gram. You can sur­vey ex­pe­ri­ments by dif­fe­rent views, com­pare ex­pe­ri­ments, trace the cur­rent state of pro­duc­tion or­ders, and test re­stric­tions. Thus you reach your op­ti­mum ex­pe­ri­ment.

INO­SIM Sta­tis­ti­cal A­na­ly­zer

INOSIM Statistical Analyzer

INO­SIM Sta­tis­ti­cal A­na­ly­zer sup­ports you in ma­na­ging un­pre­dic­tab­le pro­duc­tion in­flu­en­ces. These are si­mu­la­ted by sta­tis­ti­cal dis­tr­ibu­tion func­tions. You are en­ab­led to fore­cast fai­lures of u­nits, the a­ging of ma­chi­nes or e­ven ran­dom chan­ges du­ring re­ci­pe e­xe­cu­tion. Read more ...

INOSIM Optimizer

INO­SIM Op­ti­mi­zer finds op­ti­mum pro­duc­ti­on and pro­cess con­di­tions. By app­ly­ing ge­ne­ti­cal al­go­rithms, the op­ti­mum pa­ra­me­ter con­stel­la­tion is found to im­prove for in­stance tank di­men­sions, pro­duc­tion or­ders, or ma­chine u­ti­li­za­tion. The op­ti­mi­za­tion re­sult is di­rect­ly ap­plied to your al­rea­dy ex­ist­ing si­mu­la­tion mo­del. Read more ...

INOSIM Cape-Open Interface

Phy­si­cal and ther­mo­dy­na­mi­cal da­ta pools can be ap­plied in INO­SIM for the cal­cu­la­tion of ma­te­ri­al pro­per­ties. A spe­cial in­ter­face al­lows to com­bi­ne our soft­ware with ac­cording ex­ter­nal da­ta­ba­ses. It sup­ports CA­PE-OPEN, a mid­dle­ware stan­dard for the im­port of ther­mo­dy­na­mi­cal ma­te­rial da­ta. Read more ...

INOSIM Runtime Edition

The INOSIM Runtime Edition complies with the INOSIM Expert Edition regarding the simulation of models while being strongly restricted regarding model building and adjustment. Already existing simulation models may be loaded but cannot be changed structurally, e. g., neither units can be added nor recipe structures can be changed. Hence, no new simulation models can be generated. However, users can extensively adjust the input parameters of models (recipe parameters, unit parameters, Excel data …) as well as run and evaluate simulations.

The INOSIM Runtime Edition addresses users who wish to apply an already existing simulation model over the life cycle of a plant without exploiting a full license. Typical use cases cover the transfer of models into production for continuous monitoring of a plant, regular application with downstream controlling, or production planning. The models underlying such use cases may be generated or model changes may be supervised either by inhouse simulation experts or by the INOSIM Consulting GmbH.

Within the scope mentioned, the INOSIM Runtime Edition provides the same performance as the INOSIM Expert Edition while offering a much lower purchase price. Please contact us if you are interested in this product.
