A Consequence-Based Assessment Method/Software Model to Facilitate the Safe Location and Design of Occupied Buildings on or in Close Proximity to Process Facilities
| By DNV GL - Software
Ensuring the safe location and design of occupied buildings (permanent or temporary) is high on the agenda of key stakeholders – industry, regulators, and the workforce, not to mention members of the public who have a vested interest in the area. The significant amount of analytical work required in support of such an analysis represents a key barrier to conducting such studies in a detailed manner. It is often the case that a range of simplifications are utilised that can result in a less than realistic assessment.

This paper describes the implementation of two of the most widely used vapour cloud explosion (VCE) models, namely the TNO multi-energy (ME) and Baker-Strehlow-Tang (BST) into Phast, a general purpose onshore consequence analysis software package developed by DNV GL.

A Software Model for the Assessment of the Consequences of Explosions in Congested and Confined Spaces on Personnel, Buildings and Process Equipment
| By DNV GL - Software
Major accidents such as Buncefield, Texas City and, more recently, at the Amuay refinery in Punto Fijo Venezuela, all of which have resulted in large explosions, have focused attention on assessing the effects of Vapour Cloud Explosions (VCEs) on assets such as buildings and process equipment, as well as people. Ensuring the safe location and design of occupied buildings is high on the agenda of key stakeholders, particularly since two of the three accidents mentioned above resulted in multiple fatalities.

Aberdeen Group Report - Aligning IT to Business Processes
| By Sword CTSpace
The need to support new, agile business processes is the top pressure driving enterprise organizations, according to the latest results from Aberdeen's Business Process Management Benchmark. The overwhelming concern from line of business executives and top management surrounds the lack of ROI in their ERP investments. Over half of the respondents (51%) - mostly from small and mid-size organisations - say their companies' ERP systems or best-of-breed supply chain solutions don't provide adequate functionality! Some application software, particularly custom applications common in the supply chain, retail areas, and on shop floors are not designed to adapt or react to the rapid business process change and distributed enterprise models on which enterprises operate today.
