Picture of Jasper van BATEN, AmsterCHEM. 2020At the CAPE-OPEN 2023 Annual Meeting, Jasper van Bater, presented a CAPE-OPEN showcase on the mixing of COBIA & COM in proprietary hydroprocessing models.

Jasper is a leading expert in CAPE-OPEN, has developed its own suite of PME and PMCs, is regularly providing consultancy services on the implementation of CAPE-OPEN interfaces, is active in all CO-LaN SIGS. Jasper received the CAPE-OPEN 2006 Award for the creation of the CAPE-OPEN based simulator COCO. He has been contracted by CO-LaN to develop COBIA.


AVEVA, AmsterCHEM and Shell share some findings on interoperability achieved through CAPE-OPEN, between no less than 5 distinct pieces of software. After describing the process engineering context, performance comparisons are made to assess overhead attributed to CAPE-OPEN to COM middleware, to COBIA middleware and to marshaling between threads. All scenarios are based on an industrial case of the Shell process proprietary modeling framework.
