Product Description
The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) conducts systems analysis studies that require a large number of inputs, from ambient conditions to parameters for Aspen Plus (Aspen) process blocks.  The sheer number of assumptions required makes it impractical to document all of them in each issued report.  The purpose of this section of the Quality Guidelines is to document the assumptions most commonly used in systems analysis studies and the basis for those assumptions.
