COFE has sequential solution algorithm using automatic tear streams. COFE displays properties of streams, deals with unit-conversion and provides plotting facilities. TEA - COCO's Thermodynamics for Engineering Applications, is based on the code of the thermodynamic library of ChemSep and includes a data bank of over 150 commonly used chemicals. The package exhibits more than 100 property calculation methods with their analytical or numerical derivatives. COUSCOUS - the CAPE-OPEN Unit-operations Simple package is shipped with COCO. It contains a splitter, a mixer, heat-exchangers, pumps and reactors amongst other unit operations. ChemSep-LITE, a limited version of ChemSep with a maximum of 10 components and 150 stages, can serve as an equilibrium distillation unit operation in COCO. A full version of the equilibrium and non-equilibrium column simulator can be obtained at http://www.chemsep.com/. ChemSep-LITE is included in the COCO installation. CORN - the CAPE-OPEN Reaction Numerics package that comes with COCO facilitates specifying any kind of kinetic or equilibrium reaction. Simple reactor units, like conversion reactors, CSTRs and plug flow reactors that can use the CORN package come with the COUSCOUS package.

Developed by: Tecnomatix
Available at: http://www.plm.automation.siemens.com/en_us/products/tecnomatix/plant_design/plant_simulation.shtml
Abstract
Plant Simulation provides the ability to create complex digital models in an efficient and productive manor. Through its object orientation, hierarchy and inheritance these models remain clear, concise and predictable throughout a products life cycle. Multiple users can work on the same digital model, while libraries can be reused in other projects to speed up digital model creation and promote the use of best practices across an entire organization. Plant Simulation digital models can include production systems and processes that encompass material flow, resource utilization and logistics at all levels of the planning process -- including global production facilities, local facilities, and even specific production lines.

Simio
Developed by: Simio LLC
Available at: http://www.simio.com/
Abstract
Simio combines Object-Oriented Simulation with Discrete Event, Continuous, and Agent-Based Simulation. Simio implements several technical innovations to overcome the scalability and difficulty of use problems common in most O-O products. While Simio's standard library of objects includes some sophisticated manufacturing objects (like accumulating conveyors that merge), it remains general purpose to effectively model many common applications. The included full 3D animation produces compelling animation. The ability to modify and define intelligent objects using process graphs without programming, makes simulation software easier for decision-makers to use.
