Process Control Suite Helps Break Away From APS Silos
Honeywell’s vendor-neutral process control suite allows plant operators to centrally monitor and control both Honeywell and non-Honeywell process control systems within their plants. The process control suite allows operators and management break out of the information silos that can often occur with advanced process control (APC) systems.
Suitable for all industrial applications, the Honeywell Process Solutions’ (HPS) suite spans not only multiple APC technologies but also multiple processing facilities. This helps provide consistent performance benchmarking across the enterprise and ensure proper corrective action is taken when and where necessary.
HPS studies have shown the solution can increase service factor and application utilization by 25% while reducing troubleshooting time by up to 50%, allowing proactive maintenance practices to improve utilization and increase application service factors, according to Honeywell.
The suite includes three software products: Honeywell Loop Scout, which gives control engineers the ability to identify and correct poorly performing control loops; Honeywell Profit Expert, delivering multivariable controller monitoring for Honeywell’s Profit Controller; and Control Performance Monitor, an application that monitors, identifies, diagnoses and remedies regulatory and APC asset issues throughout the plant.
