Annual Honeywell Users Conference to Highlight Industrial Digitization

Turning Data into Actions with the Industrial Internet of Things topic at Honeywell Process Solutions’ (HPS) 28th annual Honeywell Users Group (HUG)

Turning Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) concepts into reality for manufacturing enterprises will be a key topic at Honeywell Process Solutions’ (HPS) 28th annual Honeywell Users Group (HUG) for Europe, Middle East, Africa and India regions.

Vimal Kapur, president of HPS said, “Actionable paths to adapting IIoT solutions are not a thing of the future, they are here now and are helping manufacturers transform their operations today. When Honeywell first invented the distributed control system (DCS) more than four decades ago, it gave manufacturers the ability to better use data to operate their plants more safely and productively. The amount of data generated from today’s facilities is exponentially larger and the IIoT is allowing manufacturers to efficiently manage, gather and analyze that data across multiple operations and plants to transform entire enterprises.”

Hundreds of Honeywell technology users from across the oil and gas, chemical, pulp and paper and metals and mining sectors will be attending HUG, which began today. The event will feature technology displays along with dozens of Honeywell- and customer-led sessions and technical discussions.

The conference will feature three daily themes:

What’s Next: The Right Technology, Right Now – Day 1 will focus on how new technologies that are available today can drive gains in operational efficiency, productivity and ultimately revenue growth.
Find Opportunity: Win in a Volatile Marketplace – Day 2 will examine how to take advantage of technology and services to improve reliability, safety, compliance and productivity in a time of low oil prices, increasing globalization and political instability.

Embrace Change: Engage and Empower the Next Generation – Day 3 looks at how the right environment, training and tools can unleash the power of the smart, tech-savvy and collaborative millennial workforce.

There will be a number of presentations and panel discussions focusing on how the IIoT by Honeywell can help transform manufacturing operations throughout the symposium. This focus is especially critical this year as a recent survey of manufacturing executives suggests that while investments in data analytics are rising, some companies are still trying to better understand its benefits.

In addition to the IIoT, attendees will experience many of Honeywell’s newest industrial automation technologies including Natural gas measurement, Data acquisition and analytics, Virtualization, Industrial cyber security, Control and Migrations.

The conference agenda also includes a number of presentations and panel discussions from Honeywell customers Lukoil, Shell, Saudi Aramco, British Sugar, Sabic, Marathon Oil, and others. Presentations will feature topics such as cost-effective control system migrations, instrumentation, advanced data analytics and project execution.
