BASF Selects AspenTech's Integrated Engineering Solution

Sept. 9, 2004

BASF has signed a multi-year license agreement to deploy an integrated engineering solution, which is based on the Aspen Zyqad collaborative engineering environment.

"As the world's largest chemical company, BASF needs efficient global standards and work practices," said Dr. Thomas Bott, Senior Vice President of Corporate Engineering at BASF. "AspenTech's integrated engineering solution enables best practice engineering work processes that will result in improved efficiency and reduced project cycle time. After a thorough technical evaluation of the solution, a joint BASF and AspenTech team performed a work process study that identified significant benefits."

The deployment of the integrated engineering solution by BASF follows the company's recent decision to select AspenTech's information management solution as the foundation of a new Manufacturing Execution System (MES) strategy for its worldwide manufacturing plants.
