Schneider Electric recently announced the debut of its SimSci Online platform, which it calls “the first” process design and engineering simulation software as a service (SAAS), the Pasadena, CA-based company announced Sept. 14.

A cloud software platform that brings together Schneider’s process design, simulation, training, and optimization offerings under one digital roof, the company said it expects to roll out SimSci DYNSIM, a process simulator that helps in increasing yield and reducing capital investment costs, by the end of 2016. Other SimSci products will become available in 2017.

“With efficiency and connectivity being two differentiating factors in processing engineering and optimization, too many of our customers are bogged down with managing multiple and disparate pieces of software,” Tobias Scheele, senior vice president of Schneider Electric’s design, simulation, and optimization business, said in a press release. “By bringing our simulation capabilities to the cloud with SimSci Online, our users across industries, including the academic community of university students and researchers who want to use our simulation software anywhere and at any time, will benefit from having on-demand access to the SimSci tools they rely on daily.”

The company said process engineering departments, engineering firms, and companies operating in power, oil and gas, chemicals, and mining, metals, and minerals (MMM) related industries could benefit from platform. As a cloud-based platform, users of SimSci only need an internet connection to access Schneider’s solutions. Instead of an annual fee, users are charged for the time they actually use the platform, the company’s press release said.

Schneider Electric said the SimSci Online platform is scalable for a variety of operations and uses.
