Discussion Panel at the
National Petrochemical and Refiners Computer Conference
2 October 2001

Questions were taken from attendees at the meeting. The questions
responded to by the panel included:
- What experience do users have with putting proprietary thermodynamic
data into models? How do owners of proprietary thermodynamic
data protect the information?
- Will open equation modeling replace sequential simulators?
How do you initialize open equation models?
- How do we help users get started in using models? How do
we make initial model usage easier?
- How do you manage assay data to avoid having to redo assay
input between LP models, optimization models, and process simulators?
- We have problems matching vacuum column operations? What
needs to be done to make models more accurate?
- Should vendors and technology companies be selling answers
to client companies rather than solution tools?
- For low fideltiy models - an example is operator training
models - what types are available and can you use the same tools
that high-fidelity models (process simulators) use to develop
- How and where are data reconciliation systems being used?
