"ChemCAD has a lot of capabilities but is somewhat over-particular and difficult to use."

What do you like best?

The sensitivity studies in ChemCAD are very useful. It's a great tool to see how certain parameters affect your process.

What do you dislike?

Trying to simulate reactors is very difficult. You're better off using another software to simulate a reactor and do all the calculations outside of ChemCAD. Reactors in your process can cause problems in convergence.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use ChemCAD for process simulations, simple process flow diagrams, and chemical process calculations. The software is relatively user friendly.

"Useful with Moderate Learning Curve"

What do you like best?

ChemCAD allows you to simulate real life processes. It is the most accurate software I have used and has many many capabilities to lay out processes.

What do you dislike?

There is a moderate learning curve. It is difficult to run a simulation if things are not perfectly set up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has allowed for in-depth situations of pilot processes. It helps determine how much product will be made.
