services to the process industries, announced a new release of aspenONE
Supply Chain software for chemical, specialty chemical, polymer, CPG,
life sciences and other process companies. A redesigned user interface
for Aspen Supply Chain Planner and the Aspen Plant Scheduler Family
makes it easier to navigate supply chain complexity, providing faster
access to information that expedites more profitable responses to
unexpected market conditions.
The new user interface allows planners and schedulers to quickly
access the most important information for optimal supply chain
decision making. The re-design features intelligent data
visualization, multi-screen viewing, active user assistance, improved
navigation, streamlined workflows and user configurable layouts. As a
result, process manufacturers can accelerate return on investment with
more GUI capabilities out-of-the box.
Personalized user layouts increase productivity of planners and
schedulers by saving and retrieving favorite layouts and screen
configurations with a single click. This makes it easy to adapt the
application for specific business needs.
Improved data editing, filtering, and analysis capabilities shorten
the time required to perform rigorous business simulation and what-if
scenario analysis, expediting decision making.
Advanced visual exception reporting improves support of the Sales &
Operations Planning (S&OP) process. Planners can quickly identify the
most critical and urgent problems along with pre-configured analysis
steps on how to resolve those issues.
The drag and drop functionality of a modernized planning board
provides enhanced drill downs and active user assistance, allowing
schedulers to create better production schedules faster.
The redesigned interface of the new release leverages the look and
feel of Microsoft Office applications, providing an easy to learn and
use environment that reduces training time and improves productivity.
