CASE STUDY: Shell deployed an optimized next-generation advanced process control platform

Shell Case Study | Other Manufacturing Examples


As one of the world’s leading global oil companies, Shell has been applying advanced process control technology to its plants around the world since the 1970s. With dramatic increases in optimization capabilities over the past decade, Shell sought a next-generation solution to help maximize each plant’s economic operating benefits. They turned to FICO® Xpress Optimization Suite to help model complex processes and provide robust optimization algorithms to solve large-scale control problems.


Better algorithms allow the plants to handle more complex, time-critical problems than previously possible. A customized user interface gives business users the control and flexibility to explore trade-offs and make real-time decisions for plant operation. High-performance solvers, along with more complex models in production, have increased the accuracy of these decisions. Advanced process control calculates the best actions for every situation by balancing constraints and economic objectives.
