June 26, 2017 – Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) announced the introduction of LEAP for Operations, a program that is designed to utilize the LEAP project execution methodology to help customers optimize, simplify and run ongoing industrial operations more efficiently. LEAP for Operations includes a variety of solutions with a flexible deployment strategy to get more value out of plant processes. HPS made the announcement at its annual Honeywell Users Group symposium.
Before evolving the LEAP methodology to include operations, LEAP for projects began with lean execution techniques to eliminate waste by removing repetition, rework, and redundant tasks. Honeywell worked to change automation project execution by extending this approach through simplification with independent workflows, standardized design, and enabling engineering to be done from anywhere in the world. This keeps automation off the critical path.
While a growing number of plant owners/operators are embracing technology advancements that are driving value in connectivity, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Industrie 4.0, and smart solutions, cyber security remains a concern for many.
Honeywell’s holistic solutions in support of LEAP for Operations include not only automated documentation, collaboration tools, integrated controllers, advanced alarm management, real-time analytics, proactive asset management, but also cloud-based execution with built-in cyber security. Its certified development process ensures end users get cyber security right out of the box.
