Abstract: “Traditionally simulation environments have been closed monolithic systems and the resulting bottlenecks in interoperability, reuse and innovation have led to the search for a more open and interoperable solution. The CAPE-OPEN (CO) effort, launched in January, 1997, is a standardisation process for achieving true plug and play of process industry simulation software components. The resulting CO standard is now being widely disseminated to the chemical engineering community. It relies on a technology that integrates up to date concepts from the software field such as a component-based approach. A number of software components based on this technology have been developed and are already available. Thanks to this new generation of CAPE tools, it is expected to reach cheaper, better and faster design, operation and control of processes. The CAPE-OPEN Laboratories Network (CO-LaN) consortium is in charge of managing the lifecycle of the CO standard.”

Comments: this paper was presented at ESCAPE 12 held in The Hague, The Netherlands. It describes the scope of the CAPE-OPEN standard as it was coming out of the Global CAPE-OPEN project.
