Newest Versions of Asset Manager and Field Advisor Simplify Reliability and Maintenance Programs
INDIA, Honeywell has released improved versions of its two key asset management offerings and announced an initiative to help plant operators to more effectively implement reliability-centered and predictive maintenance programs.
Announcing this the company news release said, Honeywell has refreshed its Asset Manager and Field Advisor technologies – two key solutions designed to help proactively manage the health and performance of assets – and also announced it is collaborating with global consulting, training and services firm GPAllied, in an initiative that will help plants more effectively implement reliability-centered and predictive maintenance programs.
“Industrial manufacturers pour money and resources into asset management solutions, but a critical barrier to success is having the right strategy and information to make the right decisions,” said Ron Stallworth, asset management business leader, Honeywell Process Solutions. “These newest software releases and working with GPAllied allow Honeywell to offer wall-to-wall consulting and technology for a wholly integrated solution that makes asset management part of our customers’ organizational cultures for sustainable results.”
Asset Manager is Honeywell Process Solutions’ (HPS) real-time condition-based monitoring (CBM) technology. The newest version, Asset Manager R410, seamlessly integrates with IBM’s Maximo and SAP enterprise asset management and computerized maintenance management systems. This integration allows maintenance and reliability planners to review the status and priority of equipment health and the severity of any failures, assign resources as well as raise and track work orders directly from Asset Manager.
Additionally, Honeywell’s newest version of its Field Advisor tool, which helps mobile workers prioritize and execute field tasks, has been refreshed to provide efficient automation for rounds and inspections. This refresh includes a modernized display with more user-friendly workflows and reporting functions based on Honeywell’s new Intuition framework, which allows mobile operators to better visualize data and collaborate across maintenance and reliability teams. Field Advisor also now integrates with Honeywell’s Blending and Movement Automation software to allow operators to track the status of blending tasks.
Honeywell’s collaboration with GPAllied allows the company to expand its range of services to include maintenance and reliability management, craft skills and operator care training, and change management consulting. This approach helps maximize the effectiveness of reliability-centered and predictive maintenance programs. GPAllied’s research and benchmarking will also feed into Asset Manager’s new library of standard fault models to help operators create proper workflows for plant personnel.
