In any major plant project, 80 percent of the capital expenditure is committed during the conceptual design phase. Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) must be done correctly to impact capital expenditure and Bentley’s AXSYS®.Process is the FEED product to achieve better front-end engineering and help minimize capital expenditure. Optimizing Front-End Engineering Design generally entails spending time evaluating alternative designs and then selecting the best case from these alternatives. AXSYS.Process allows users to perform more designs in less time and better evaluate these designs in order to find the most cost-effective case. AXSYS.Process has helped major chemical companies, such as Mitsubishi Chemical, reduce a FEED project duration by 45 percent, reduce engineering man-hours by 50 percent yielding a final cost-to-market reduction of about 50 percent.
