DSS is used by refineries and terminals to schedule their docks, enabling them to save on demurrage costs that are incurred due to delays in on-loading or off-loading cargo.

AspenTech’s existing Petroleum Supply Chain products include Aspen PIMS™, the world’s leading petroleum and petrochemical planning system and Aspen Petroleum Scheduler, which enables fast, accurate and collaborative creation of refinery schedules. Adding PSS & DSS, which are already used by some leading refineries, will enable AspenTech customers to further optimize their petroleum supply chains.
