Can any one write down a link/website where i can the no of plant proto types or simulations or any website where I can see how the different plant work after different pieces of plant are connected together, Just want to have clue about the process flow of the plant,Thanking you in advance

It's not clear what you are trying to achieve.
A large sewage works will have different sections - but completely different from a Newspaper printing works (with re-cycle facility).

The only way you will truly appreciate how plant is connected is to visit a site and be shown round - some sites I have been involved in have school trips late spring/early summer.

see:

I understand the latter is for you to configure your own process modelling prior to build.
"Tecnomatix Plant Simulation is a discrete event simulation tool that helps you to create digital models of logistic systems (e.g., production), so that you can explore the systems' characteristics and optimize its performance".

Another piece of sortware for plant simulation is called arena and can be downloaded from Rockwell free for limited use by students.

Arena software

The software is commonly used by Uk universities for some of their modules.

Kind regards

Bahahaha! Was I the only one to spot oneye's sharp analogy with the sewerage and the newspaper printing works (with re-cycle facility)?

In my experience the raw ingredient for both processes is the same...

Thank you solaral for finding my posting amusing .. it wasn't really meant to be.

I had in mind 2 sites:
- a large newspaper printing / paper mill in Kent which has a fair sized waste paper facility as part of it's raw material input.
- a Sewage plant in Bristol which not only treats human waste but also re-cycles waste food, turning both into energy for re-generation and other by-products.

Both must have been 'modelled' in some way to maximise the return which is not only good for the environment but should be fairly profitable businesswise.
