Honeywell Process Solutions today announced the launch of LEAP project services designed to help manufacturers in the processing industries get their plants up and running faster and at lower cost, according to the company. LEAP combines Honeywell Process Solutions proprietary hardware and software, virtualization and cloud engineering. The approach was featured at the 2014 Honeywell Users Group Americas Symposium, the company’s largest gathering of industrial customers.
LEAP uses parallel workflows to keep automation systems off critical implementation paths. LEAP creates separate streams of work for the physical and functional aspects of project design. This approach allows project engineering to take place from anywhere in the world, and removes workflow dependencies to allow core project tasks to start earlier in the process. It also minimizes the cost and volume of rework typically associated with automation projects, according to the company.
LEAP combines three key core technologies available in Honeywell’s Experion PKS Orion: universal channel technology, virtualization and cloud engineering.
