Pros: This software works well for chemical process modeling, and was used at my university to teach design to senior design. It had many features that worked well for the course, and basically had everything necessary for us to complete our design project and learn what we needed to. I can definitely see uses in industry as this project gave us a good background on what we could expect with process engineering or process design roles.

Cons: It can be difficult to learn, and some people fell behind throughout the semester. Unfortunately, there may not be much that can be done about this. In fact, there are a lot of tutorials and helpful advice on the website, and even some workshops. The toughness just comes from the rigor from chemical engineering in the first place. Some may argue that alternative chemical process design software may be better, but it really is not much better than this in my opinion.

Overall: This taught me and my classmates a lot about process design engineering and was a great tool to take many chemical engineering skills and apply them to real life. The online help was also very helpful for topics that may not have been covered in class.

Pros: It is excellent for the simulation of food industry processes, such as multireaction petrochemical processes, since it allows the inclusion of the performance and selectivity data

Cons: I did not like graphic interdaz, it's unfriendly for a beginner. It should be more didactic, additional there is not much availability of information about the simulator.

Overall:

I was excellent, I managed to perform the necessary simulation, however, understanding the graphical interface some time is lost

Pros: Very helpful for chemical process design. Getting up to speed is simple and more advanced simulation features.

Cons: Other software for simulation that seemed more valuable to learn. Once we learned basics in ChemCad we were using other process software.

Overall: Learned the basics and was able to do a few projects. Would be worth learning more advanced features.

While Chemcad is a great simulation tool, it is slow, crashes easily, and is extremely sensitive.

Pros: For processes that are not too complex, this software is easy to pick up on.

Cons: Process design with multiple unit operations is extremely difficult and Chemcad rarely converges. Little to no troubleshooting available.

Pros: Very simple with many different unit ops. Thermodynamic models seem to be accurate and effective. Easy to use

Cons: Appearance is old looking compared to other flowsheeting software. There needs to be more cost calculating functionality
