Attendees had an opportunity to experience firsthand many of Honeywell’s solutions under the HCP portfolio:

* Industrial cyber security: Honeywell showcased its Industrial Cyber Security Risk Manager, a solution that provides a single view for operations, IT and leadership teams to monitor, measure and manage cyber security across the enterprise. The team also demonstrated its new Secure Media Exchange (SMX), which gives operators unprecedented control and visibility into the secure use of USB and removable storage by personnel and contractors alike, reducing cyber risk to process control networks globally.

* Automated change management software: A powerful documentation and change management software that helps customers’ industrial control system integrity, Honeywell Trace replaces paper-based records and spreadsheets with an automated solution. This helps minimize errors due to changes in configurations, improve worker productivity, and simplify automation asset management by providing a single integrated view of complex system interactions.

* Data acquisition and analytics: The expanded Uniformance Suite software provides real-time digital intelligence through advanced process and event data collection, asset-centric analytics and powerful visualization technology, turning plant data into actionable information to enable smart operations.

* Plant performance: Honeywell Connected Plant applications that leverage the IIoT to tap Honeywell’s deep process knowledge, design expertise and understanding of catalysis with next-generation software platforms from Honeywell Process Solutions. The software-based service enables refiners and petrochemical and gas processing plants to improve their performance.
