This paper presents the extensive upgrades of Aspen Batch Process Developer™ (ABPD) that is a recipe-based batch process modeling and simulation environment, designed to employ over the entire life cycle of processes from early synthetic route selection to plant scale engineering. The user interface, in particular, operations dialog re-written in C# is of high customization. A number of enhanced provisions have been incorporated to support data management. A set of challenging schedule issues that have routinely exhibited in industrial processes, but not provided complete solutions in commercial tools yet, are addressed. Generic approach for industrial solutions is implemented, in combination with automatic scheduling and interactive scheduling constraints over multi-levels of process representation hierarchy.
