The future of technology in manufacturing and the state of the workforce will be the focus of Honeywell’s annual industrial customer conference June 16-22 in Phoenix.
Approximately 1,000 attendees – representing major oil and gas, refining, chemical, pulp and paper, and metals and mining companies, among others – will participate in the 2013 Honeywell Users Group (HUG) Americas symposium, hosted by Honeywell Process Solutions.
Amid the backdrop of an evolving energy landscape, uncertain global markets, and high-profile safety incidents, attendees will see how the newest technology can help improve the safety, reliability and efficiency of their plants and help them to remain competitive.
In recent years, the conference has helped introduce manufacturers to advancements such as control system virtualization, universal input/output (I/O) technology, and smart instrumentation that have transformed the design and operations of today’s industrial processing facilities. This year’s event will highlight more than the technology that links the corporate boardroom to the plant floor. Attendees will discuss the growing importance of preventative and corrective services that keep plant automation systems running at top performance levels, while easing the burden on their workers.
Attendees will experience technologies such as Honeywell’s Experion Collaboration Station, a large interactive display that uses video and telecommunications capabilities to remotely connect global experts. This approach centralizes operations, and helps personnel analyze events and resolve situations faster. Experion Collaboration Station was introduced at Honeywell’s global HUG conferences last year, and will be demonstrated with full capability for the first time in June.
