What People are saying


Reviews from some of our valuable Students, Engineers and Companies
It was a great learning experience, The Instructor is so knowledgable, and emphasize on practical aspects as well as theory, mixing theory with practice by having PITOPS software is great way to gain real industry experience.

All in all, the PID100 and APC200 training was very well done. I felt the material was presented in a professional and engaging manner.


Since we bought SIMCET and PITOPS our way of teaching has been positively changed. Now we can easily present to students how PID controller works, finally all in time domain, and what are the benefits of PID control loop tuning. Our students are amazed with the simplicity and the efficiency of the software.

I finished all the training sessions for PID100 and APC200 yesterday. It was a really great course. You all did a great job of being experts who have not lost sight of where the beginner is in the process. Your instruction was incredibly clear and easy to follow.

I attended APC100 course and I really enjoyed it. I think the training material is both sufficient and in an easy to understand format. The course was held over a three day period, with the lecturer answering questions as they arise.

I was very impressed about the features of your PITOPS for loop tuning. I saw the results obtained by using your tool, and could understand the overall philosophy of your product. At this moment, we are focused in the commissioning and startup of the new refinery. We will contact you for loop tuning activities.

I mentioned your excellent courses to our controls group. So hopefully they will take advantage of your informative courses.

The instructions on how to change the PID controller parameters are included with some DCS/controller manuals but other competitors do not show easily how to come up with the optimal PID tuning parameters. After a lot of reading and research I took your PID tuning training course which is full of excellent material as I have said.

From the word go, I have always been excited at the thought of how the company represents the world of industrial process control. As a field instrument engineer, playing around with the PID loops of electronic temperature controllers was a rare luxury. Reasons: (i) you do not want to disrupt real time processes (ii) you do not want to be responsible for any colossal loss and/or downtime that can be ascribed to the disruptions you cause (iii) you do not want to lose your job as a result. To me, the foregoing nightmares are being addressed using SIMCET & PITOPS PID-tuning demos as well as customized training courses and the committment to the refinement of these demos on an on-going basis. Apart from risking things with real time controllers on the factory floor, you have the luxury of exploring through the same factory floor physical conditions right in your bed room or in a classroom using laptops or desktops installed with PID software simulators known as SIMCET & PITOPS.

Your training totally exceeded our expectations. Training conducted was world class. The software is very user-friendly and the same software can be used as training tool as well as for use on DCS PID tuning in control room. We recommend now to all industrial plants and academic colleges. The PITOPS and SIMCET process control tools are amazingly simple and powerful. We are glad we chose you over 6 bidders from North America and Europe.

Our refinery is interested in taking PID tuning training and DCS-based APC training. The PITOPS and SIMCET software for system identification, PID tuning optimization are very practical and easy to understand even for new engineers with no experience.

In April I showed the SIMCET software to a group of engineers that the University gathered looking for students for a specialization course. About 20 engineers attended the lecture and they liked the software. Yesterday I presented the PITOPS software to a control engineer from the refinery for a refinery project. From my point of view, SIMCET and PITOPS are truly amazing software products from both an academic and industrial perspective.

Professor and Process Control Consultant

SIMCET is both a very simple and yet powerful tool for training purposes especially when they are combined with theoretical classes, in that way hands-on part of training brings most value. PITOPS is very powerful and robust tool that is very easy to install and even connect with OPC to third party historian. With intuitive interface it is very easy to identify process model dynamics and make loop tuning both on single and cascade loops.

We are amazed at how simple, modern and practical your software is and the training is very hands on. I learnt lot more in a week than a decade of hands-on work. And thanks to PITOPS PID optimizer and your onsite consulting services, we were able to pass government tests on frequency control.

We were looking at other technologies but after we saw your PITOPS, SIMCET and training material, choosing you was quick and obvious.

Your technology is 21st century. All your competitors are using old technology and complicated software. I learnt a lot from this training.
