Life Cycle Dynamic Simulation is a proven technology to improve the operations of process plants. The Mimic v3.6.3 release includes new functionality for better process data viewing and model performance, opening up new benefits to new industries.
These additions to Mimic in v3.6.3 include new data visualization and modeling functions for solids handling, performance enhancements for all dynamic simulations, and a new Simulated IO Driver for users of Siemens S7 and PCS7 control systems.
Mimic is a proven solution for delivering high-performance, low cost of ownership for the Mining industry. See Improving Mine Operations with Dynamic Simulation and Extending Life Cycle Results to Mineral Processing. In Mimic v3.6.3 are several enhancements to make Life Cycle Dynamic Simulation for the mining industry easier and more useful. These enhancements were developed in collaboration with our friends at Portage Technologies.
The Mimic enhancements for better mining and solids process include the following in the Mimic Portage Mining Advanced Modeling Objects:
With these enhancements Mimic continues to be the leading solution for dynamic simulation of mining and solids handling processes.
In software development, sometimes the biggest enhancements to support the user experience are "under the hood". In Mimic v3.6.3 there were several "under the hood" optimizations to Mimic streams and pressure/flow solver. The result of these unseen enhancements is a 30% increase in model performance and additional model accuracy, supporting bigger, more complex models. Real-time performance in Mimic improves with the result of greater applications and life cycle benefits.
Other dynamic simulation performance enhancements in Mimic v3.6.3 are:
In Mimic v3.6.3 we enhanced our existing Simulated IO Driver for Siemens, Mimic SPA SIO Driver, to include support for the Siemens SIMIT Simulation Software. Already deployed on several projects globally, this new Simulated IO Driver extends the proven benefits of Life Cycle Dynamic Simulation with Mimic to plants that use the Siemens S7 and PCS7 systems Setup and communication is easy with this SIO Driver. Implementation of this Virtual Dynamic Simulator architecture is proven. This high performance interface even supports integrated process and control system snapshots and system speedup/slowdown using Mimic Operator Training Manager.
Mimic v3.6.3 was released on December 20, 2016. Mimic users current on Mimic Software Support can upgrade to Mimic v3.6.3 at no additional charge. This release of Mimic improves the performance and usability of dynamic simulation, providing greater life cycle benefits for process plants. The value of dynamic simulation is proven. Mimic v3.6.3 delivers greater business results for less time and money.
I look forward to your comments, questions, or suggestions.
Hope to hear from you soon.
