Honeywell Launches Enterprise-Wide Software for Process Industries

May 10, 2012
Intuition Executive Solution connects people, process and technology for more intelligent operations.

Honeywell (www.honeywellprocess.com/digitalplant) has launched Intuition Executive, the flagship product of its new Intuition software portfolio Intuition Executive delivers enterprise-wide information management, decision support and collaboration tools to help companies achieve operational excellence.

Companies in the process industries often use dozens of applications and hundreds of spreadsheets to manage complex production operations, monitor processes and make operating decisions.These systems are usually either completely isolated or are connected with complex, custom-designed interfaces that make it difficult to use the data effectively and maintain data integrity.

According to the company, its sophisticated data processing and analytics capabilities solve this critical challenge. The software anticipates problems and identifies opportunities. Its collaboration tools highlight and capture expert knowledge, share information and help users to make more agile decisions and take action in order to drive intelligent operations and solve key challenges. For companies in the process industry this results in increased efficiency and the ability to manage and respond to volatile energy costs, complex regulatory changes, and real-world safety challenges.

“Data integration and visualization is a must have for our customers today,” said Ian Brown, vice president & general manager, Advanced Solutions, Honeywell Process Solutions. “The ability to see, understand and act on the relationships within critical data is key to creating competitive advantage, and this can only be achieved when all applications and underlying data are amalgamated. Once you do this, you can identify and take advantage of opportunities earlier, mitigate potentially damaging plant events and make confident business decisions.”

Intuition Executive is developed on and extends the functionality of Microsoft Corp. technologies such as Microsoft SharePoint 2010, SQL Server and StreamInsight to meet the requirements of industrial operations.

Company spokespeople told Automation World that this software, the first of a planned suite of products, has been built from the ground up as a new application. Powered by Matrikon, Intuition Executive is vendor neutral and will connect to any control system or underlying data source.
