About OptiPlant

OptiPlant is a leading provider of AI Driven 3D Conceptual Design and Engineering Automation software to help owner operators and EPC optimize conceptual designs and estimates and accelerate development of Front-End Engineering Designs (FEED) to save capital, improve safety and reduce environmental impact. OptiPlant is headquartered in Walnut Creek, California.


The acquisition of OptiPlant by Aspen Technology Inc. further strengthens the company’s solutions for owner-operators and EPCs with a large presence in the process industries. AI-driven 3D conceptual plant layout, with parametric asset models and automatic pipe routing, enables closer collaboration between owner-operators and EPCs to improve accuracy, reliability and speed of cost estimates from the earliest stages in capital projects.
Aspen OptiPlant 3D Layout™ allows you to select the optimal solution to meet your business, engineering and construction needs, improving asset safety and environmental performance. In addition, this product can help EPCs increase agility and speed of Conceptual and Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) development, dramatically reducing the engineering effort. Common visualization accelerates collaboration between owner-operators and EPCs and also between Process, Mechanical, Piping and Layout Engineering disciplines. Aspen OptiPlant 3D Layout’s innovative approach to automated plant and piping layout integrates with AspenTech’s industry-leading modeling (Aspen Plus® and Aspen HYSYS®), cost estimating (Aspen Capital Cost Estimator™) and FEED deliverables (Aspen Basic Engineering™) systems.
