Digital transformation business helps to harness the benefits of IIoT
10 May 2016
Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) has established a new business unit designed to help manufacturers harness the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and more rapidly deploy technologies that will allow them to better manage and analyse data, making their operations safer, more reliable and more efficient.
Andrew Hird has been named vice president and general manager of Honeywell’s new Digital Transformation unit. Commenting on the new business unit, he said: “Honeywell’s expertise in IIoT allows us to solve customer challenges by consolidating data in the cloud from multiple disparate systems, applying higher-level analytics and leveraging experts who are often physically remote from the customer site.” Honeywell offers automation and control room solutions for a wide range of process industries and has knowledge in connectivity with OPC UA, cyber security and advanced software development.”
Among Honeywell’s technologies that help operators prioritise and manage a growing amount of operational data are DynAMo alarm and operations management; Industrial Cyber Security Risk Manager, which proactively monitors and manages cyber risk for industrial environments; Assurance 360, a multi-year cooperative service arrangement to maintain, support and optimise the performance of Honeywell control systems; and Pulse, a mobility app that allows plant managers to monitor real-time operations from a smartphone.
HPS’s IIoT solutions utilise Honeywell’s software infrastructure which provides a solution for the capture of industrial data in a secure portal that can be scaled to meet the varied needs of single-site or enterprise-wide operations.
For the refining and petrochemical industries, Honeywell Process Solutions will leverage the expertise of Honeywell UOP – a range of technologies used globally to turn oil and natural gas into transportation fuels and petrochemicals.
