AspenWatch issue - some numbers don't look right


Dear All,
I was hoping to use AspenWatch data for the companies DMC controllers to
give me some help in understanding how good our DMC controllers are
performing. However after a couple of re-installs of the model and CCF
files and a good clearout of the old AspenWatch data files for the
controller all I get is something like the following...
NAME LSTRBD ACTDSTD ACTFFWD ACTPRDD ACTCTLD ACTOPTD SSRESTD
CV01 -2.186 0 0.003 100 100 99.951 58.611
CV02 0 0 0.001 100 100 96.811 77.989
CV03 0 0 6.097 100 100 35.385 100
CV04 22.453 0 3.362 100 100 23.008 100
CV05 6.421 0 0.859 100 100 99.977 100
CV06 -0.285 0 4.722 100 100 99.981 100
CV07 79.206 0 11.244 100 100 3.672 100
CV08 0 0 8.254 100 100 101.985 100
CV09 0 0 1000 100 100 100 100
CV10 0 0 0 100 100 69.566 100
CV11 -5.009 0 0.001 100 100 98.382 27.271
CV12 -0.577 0 0 100 100 57.444 64.316
CV13 -0.056 0 0 100 100 88.098 50.972
This is an improvement of what I originaly had (I think!). Now the
ACTFFD, ACTOPTD and SSRESTD figures look sensible but ACTDSTD is exactly
0 for all CVs and does not change and ACTPRDD & ACTCTLD are 100 exactly
and again never change. I cannot believe that the model is 100% correct
for all CV predictions all the time!
I have read the manuals which were a bit of help and I have talked to
colleagues but non-of them seem to have had much success with their
AspenWatch figures either although for different reasons to mine.
Any ideas where to look?
Its an old-ish version of AspenWatch (version 6).
Thanks in advance,
Mark Evans
