HPI engineers and designers must use a collection of software (in-house, commercial and/or academic) to do computer-aided process engineering (CAPE) because the market for process simulation has been one of incompatible proprietary products. To be competitive, more effective CAPE is necessary. Recognizing this, the European CAPE-OPEN project established a set of standards to allow communication between software from different sources (software and equipment vendors, universities and "home grown"). Global CAPE-OPEN (GCO) is an intelligent manufacturing systems (IMS) project that builds on the results of CAPE-OPEN. The GCO consortium encompasses a wide range of leading process industry compa
