  • AspenTech and CAPE-OPEN

    AspenTech has been involved in the definition of the CAPE-OPEN standard from the beginning and continues to work actively with the CO-LaN (CAPE-OPEN Laboratories Network) organization which now maintains the standard. AspenTech is an Associate Member of CO-LaN.

    AspenTech supports the CAPE-OPEN Unit Operation and Thermodynamics standards in its flagship simulation products Aspen Plus V8 and Aspen HYSYS V8. The CAPE-OPEN standard makes it possible to develop Unit Operations and Thermodynamics Packages that can be used by these AspenTech simulation products and by any other CAPE-OPEN compliant Simulation tool. AspenTech has developed Wizard-style tools to help develop these types of software component more efficiently and both tools are available for download from this page.

    Use the CAPE-OPEN Thermo Wizard downloadable from to create CAPE-OPEN compliant Thermodynamic Packages.
