Schneider Electric announces Global Software Agreement with Shell for SimSci Spiral Suite

SimSci Spiral Suite, Schneider Electric’s enterprise solution for unified supply chain optimization licensed by Shell

LAKE FOREST, CA – 31 August, 2015Schneider Electric Software, a global leader in industrial software for the process industries, announced today that Shell has signed a global agreement for Spiral Suite that includes planning, scheduling and supply and distribution optimization modules.

Spiral Suite is the industry's only unified planning and scheduling environment designed from the ground up. It fully supports all supply chain work processes across large and small refineries, bringing together enterprise crude knowledge management, planning, scheduling and envelope optimization activities in a single software application. The result is a solution that better explores opportunities, reduces operational risk and shrinks the gap between planned and actual results. All activities are supported within a single application, with a single user interface and a single source of data with version and data management control. Spiral Suite enables information to be shared easily between users, improving understanding and collaboration between traders, planners and schedulers and replacing potentially disjointed point solutions.

“We are pleased to collaborate with Shell on this project. Spiral Suite promises to enhance the refinery business environment where diverse business groups can collaborate to understand how their decisions impact others and then cooperate to collectively unlock the maximum value of their economic forecasts,” said Ravi Gopinath, Ph.D., Executive Vice President, Schneider Electric Software. “It increases transparency and collaboration across different business groups, enabling our customers to make the best overall decisions for safety and profitability while taking better advantage of new opportunities presented by the market.”
