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.
“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,” said Vimal Kapur, president of HPS. “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.
