Updated aggregate plant simulation program
First publishedin Aggregates Business Europe
Bedrock Software has released Version 276 for its Aggflow aggregate plant simulation program.
The new program represents more than three years of extensive programming and design work and incorporates the latest features, capabilities and equipment available in what is claimed to be the world’s most widely used plant optimisation software.
Version 276 allows program users to simulate aggregate plant operations more realistically than ever before, and in addition to the modelling capabilities and blending calculations, the program helps track and report all aspects of plant operations including machine power usage, operating costs and emissions.
These improvements provide program users with the ability to implement the forthcoming AggOPTI profitability module to calculate profitability scenarios and determine the most profitable operating schedule to meet specific product demand.
“Version 276 sets the stage for AggOPTI profitability modelling. Accurate profit modelling is the ultimate goal for aggregate producers and AggOPTI will provide it” said Bryan Lewis, president of BedRock Software, and inventor of the AggFlow program. AggOPTI is scheduled for release in 2012.
AggFlow is used by aggregate producers, equipment manufacturers and dealers in more than 95 countries to simulate aggregate and mining operations.
Users can select from the pre-populated equipment data library or install their own equipment models in the program using the generic equipment option. Currently, the program includes more than 5,000 models of aggregate crushing, screening and washing equipment.
