Why DWSIM Pro?

DWSIM Pro is the result of a cooperation between Daniel Wagner Oliveira de Medeiros, the creator and developer of DWSIM, and CGC Capital-Gain Consultants GmbH, an established software development company active in the field of process simulation.

DWSIM Pro is the commercial sibling of DWSIM with extended features and structured private support. It is built on top of DWSIM and hosted on simulate365.com, a platform operating cloud-based software services and other advanced engineering applications.

DWSIM Pro exclusive features are added to DWSIM through the new Extensions Interface, an evolution of the Plugins and External Unit Ops/Property Packages interfaces that have been part of DWSIM for many years.
