ASIM is a simulator for a wastewater treatment plant. It
does not do the design for you. But if you have done a
design using design guidelines or steady state mass balance
approach, then ASIM and mathematical modeling can be an
excellent tool to verify and optimize the design. 

For design of WWTP see for example
