Process Design Center successful with PROSYN

The Dortmunder company Process Design Center successfully markets their product PROSYN. Leading Chemical industry companies are using PROSYN to synthesize complex chemical processes. PROSYN is a heuristic, numerical assistant to develop process concepts and alternatives in the early stage of process development. It can be used both in the experimenetal phase and re-design phase of existing chemical plants.

At the beginning of a project there is often only basic or restricted information available about a chemical reaction path or a specific mixture. A team of Chemical Engineers coordinate the design of efficient reactors and processes to produce different products.

The complex task of co-ordinating this diverse knowledge is handled by PROSYN as a combination of database, numerical calculation and heuristic rules is implemented in IF/Prolog.
