The power to be certain
  • How we work

    Long-term relationships tailored to how you work

    PSE works in many different ways with many different customers in many different process industries.

    As an organisation we choose to work flexibly and collaboratively in long-term relationships wherever possible, to maximise the mutual benefit from the application of Advanced Process Modelling.

    The 4 pillars of a model-based engineering infrastructure

    The 4 pillars of a model-based engineering infrastructure: Software, models, people and workflows

    Many of the existing companies in the process simulation and modelling space offer products OR services. PSE offers both. Why?

    Our experience shows that to maximise the considerable long-term sustainable value that can be created by model-based engineering requires a well-developed modelling infrastructure of skilled, experienced personnel with strong understanding of business and technology drivers.

    It also requires the ability to deliver projects rapidly and to the highest quality. Both of these require skills and experience that are not always readily available in the modern organisation.

    We believe that PSE can play an important part in providing team members and building infractructure, by providing not only software but also services, tailored content and education and training.

    Degrees of collaboration

    At one end of the scale, we provide purely software, in the form of gPROMS platform products. At the other end of the scale, we may provide a purely consulting service that results in a report deliverable.

    However the vast majority of our customer relationships involve a combination of software and services.

    PSE: How we work

    Typical modes of operation are:

    Please note that theese are loose, not fixed, categorisations. Customers typically move freely between the different modes of operation, as each project has its own requirements.

    A key objective of all of our collaborative work with customers is the transfer of modelling know-how to customers, to enable you to build a modelling infrastructure around advanced process modelling best practice.

    We are happy to recommend the appropriate way of working on any project, based on project technical or business requirements, the availability of modelling personnel with the required skills within your organisation, the complexity of models required, the experience that PSE can bring to bear in the application area, and so on.

    Why do we prefer to work collaboratively?

    We see many advantages to working collaboratively on both sides:

    For us, there is a further advantage: we get to understand the challenges being faced by industry, and how we need to develop our tools and services to help our customers meet these challenges, based on immediate feedback.
