Operational Excellence Transformation is Yokogawa and KBC’s co-innovated portfolio of solutions and services.We provides comprehensive solutions for business automation in all four areas using consulting and digital technology.
Asset Operation and Optimization deals with realizing the potential of physical assets by pushing throughput and maximizing the production of the highest-value products, while minimizing variable costs, such as energy. It ensures small and large capital expenditure projects are delivered on time and on budget, to achieve growth and meet environment requirements. Through these competencies, it will be possible for companies to take full advantage of their physical assets. Yokogawa’s Asset Operation and Optimization solution leverages industry-leading technology to generate precise operating information to increase operator insight, ultimately leading to improved performance and profitability.
With our track record of providing project execution and thorough lifecycle services and KBC consulting, our customers can obtain practical and deep insights on maximizing their physical assets. Together, we aim to contribute and actualize improvements not only for profitability, but also for overall safety, operability and reliability.
·Supply Chain Optimization
- Optimize management of supply, whether oil in the ground or feedstocks for a refinery or chemical asset, in light of product market demands. This provides operators with the agility to take full advantage of market conditions.
·Operational Risk Management
- Reliably control safety, health and environmental risk at a personal and process level. This assures the robustness required to avoid catastrophic losses.
·Asset Management and Integrity
- Confidently ensure asset reliability and availability, whilst controlling maintenance costs. This assures the asset always meets expectations and is always available to capitalize on short term market opportunities.
A product of Yokogawa's alliance with Shell, Exasmoc was jointly developed - and is in continual development - to meet the demanding necessities of industry. Designed for use by a process engineer in a process plant with minimal advanced control theory knowledge, Exasmoc is a multi-variable control APC suite built by the user for the user.

Designed for use by a process engineer in a process plant with minimal advanced control theory knowledge, Exasmoc is a multi-variable control APC suite built by the user for the user.
Key Characteristics of Exasmoc
Exasmoc is a multi-variable control suite that is able to compute sequences of manipulated variable adjustments for the purpose of optimizing future plant behavior with the use of models to evaluate the effects of control strategies.
Able to deal with explicit constraints, Exasmoc goes in pursuit for an ideal strategy for one control step, and then re-evaluates its strategy based on the plant's response. It also simultaneously copes with amplitude constraints on inputs, outputs, and states.
Having reduced oscillations in the controlled variables, Exasmoc allows the operator to work the plant to its optimum, raising the plant's profitable operating point without violating quality specification.
Advanced Features of Exasmoc
What better way to improve business and operational performance than to implement Exasmoc?
AIDA Advanced Identification and Data Analysis
AIDA is a complementary identification package that goes together with Exasmoc. A fundamental requirement for an ideal predictive controller is the "model". A user-friendly package, AIDA helps to constantly engineer the model.
Key Features of AIDA
Coupled with a user-friendly interface, the mentioned features make AIDA an ideal tool on which the model can be built.
A Malaysian Gas Processing and Transmission Company a subsidiary of the national oil & gas major, plays a prominent role in the gas business value chain. The company operates as a throughput service company providing the services of processing and transmission of gas to the power generation sectors and various customers.
In 2000, we formed a technical tie-up with Shell Global Solutions (SGSI) to enter the advanced process control and optimization solution business. At the same time, we started marketing a solution based package comprising an Exasmoc multi-variable model-based predictive control function, an Exarqe property estimation function, an Exaspot online real-time optimizer and an MD control monitor & diagnosis function by taking full advantage of the SGSI advanced control and optimization technology (APC&O).
Yokogawa has formed an alliance with Shell Global Solutions International B.V. (SGSI) for advanced process control and has been jointly developing related products since then. As part of this collaborative work, we commercialized the Exasmoc multivariable model predictive control package and the Exarqe robust quality estimator package in 2000, which are used to control DCS and PLC systems based on SGSI's multivariable predictive control and quality estimation algorithms—namely, SMOC (Shell Multivariable Optimizing Controller) and RQE (Robust Quality Estimator).
In 1999, Yokogawa Electric Corporation formed an alliance with Shell Global Solutions International B.V. (SGSI) in Advanced Process Control (APC), and both companies have since jointly developed products. This alliance successfully combined SGSI's experience gained through more than 800 projects in more than 30 years and Yokogawa's great deal of experience with the process control market, and strengthened the scheme to provide the APC technology.
For a coal fired power generation plant (hereafter referred to as "BTG facilities," in which "BTG" stands for boiler, steam turbine, and generator) supplying power to a large-scale production plant, the CO2 emissions from such facilities are a critical issue today.
Due to emerging competitors from the rapidly growing countries such as India and China and the global economic downturn triggered by the Lehman shock, many companies in the process industries are struggling to survive the severe global competition.
