AggFlow Design and Manage is a hybrid program that allows workers to work on-line or offline and to share projects with other users at will. The sharing capability is intended to allow process engineers, consultants, and equipment dealers to work collaboratively when developing a plant optimization strategy. Simulation can be used to determine optimal production capacity for a particular equipment configuration; then users can input field sample data to compare what the operation is actually producing to its theoretical capability. This information can then be used to identify and eliminate bottlenecks and inefficiencies. BedRock | 8 AGGREGATES MANAGER August 2013 Rollout_AGRM0813.indd 8 7/17/13 8:31 AM
