Resumen

PEREZ, Sergio A; NINO, Zulay M  y  CISNEROS, Geraldine. SIMPHA: Simulation Software for Production Processes of Corn Oil and Pre-Cooked Corn Flour. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2006, vol.17, n.6, pp.133-139. ISSN 0718-0764.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642006000600020.

Development of the SIMPHA software program is presented for the simulation of the refining process which produces precooked corn flour and edible corn oil. The software developed allows study of the parameters related to the efficiency of the process, rapidly and reliably generating information for use in decision making. In order to reach the objective it was necessary to identify the stages in the process, develop mathematical models, codify algorithms for resolution of the mathematical models, develop the algorithm for cost estimations, and validate the program. The results obtained were compared with real data from an operating plant, obtaining deviations of less than 2% in material balances. The program can calculate the cost-benefit factor for any modification introduced into the process.

Palabras clave : process simulation; corn flour; corn oil; material balance.
