Summit highlights Honeywell
Connected Plant's impact on productivity and efficiency
KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA - Media OutReach - July 5, 2018 - Connected
Plant technologies such as advanced data analytics and cloud technology were at
the core of Honeywell's (NYSE: HON) Malaysia
Technology Summit 2018, highlighting how they can power Malaysia's Industry 4.0
transformation. The day-long event drew automation professionals from across the
process industries and addressed key topics such as the role of advanced
analytics in smarter asset performance management, industrial cybersecurity as
well as insights on safety and skills.
Nigel Brockett, Vice President Sales, Asia Pacific, Honeywell Process Solutions, addressing the media during the roundtable session, said, "Malaysia has been actively pursuing an Industry 4.0 agenda, particularly in the manufacturing and oil and gas sectors, which have invested heavily in solutions that enhance productivity."

Malaysia is on the
cusp of two major revolutions -- the transformation into a manufacturing hub and
the digital transformation, driven by the government's vision to digitize the
economy, citizens, and infrastructure. Honeywell Connected Plant technologies support
these evolutions by addressing challenges that threaten to throttle industrial
operations such as unplanned downtimes and a widening skills gap.

At the summit's technology
center, attendees could view and experience the newest automation products and
capabilities, including some of the Honeywell Connected Plant solutions that have been
launched in 2018:
- Thermal IQ -- Enables maintenance
engineers and plant managers to more effectively monitor and manage their
thermal process equipment, minimizing unplanned downtime and maximizing uptime.
Cloud Historian -- This software-as-a-service cloud hosting solution for
enterprise-wide data capture, visualization and analysis helps customers
improve asset availability, optimize processes and increase plant uptime.
Performance Management -- Integrates asset and process data for actionable insights to improve
asset performance and plant profitability.
This cloud-based simulation offering uses a combination of augmented reality
(AR) and virtual reality (VR) to train plant personnel on critical industrial
work activities, empowering them to directly improve plant performance, uptime,
reliability and safety.
- Personal Gas
This solution integrates with Honeywell's leading plant control system to
protect workers and speed emergency response in case of hazardous leaks or
This hands-free, wearable technology allows industrial workers to more safely,
reliably and efficiently accomplish their tasks in the plant or the field. It
uses a head-mounted visual display that responds to voice and brings live data,
documents, work procedures, as well as health and safety information into view
and can connect field workers with remote experts in real time.
Combines Experion distributed control, batch automation, and new visualization
technology for improved efficiency, quality and throughput.
- Measurement IQ
for Gas -
Provides measurement under control by transforming metering operations with
24/7 real-time condition-based monitoring.
In addition to the emphasis on
digital technologies to improve productivity and manufacturing uptime, keeping
the high-tech infrastructure secure is a key priority for Malaysian
"Cybercrime has steadily grown in the region
and Malaysia's drive toward Industry 4.0 makes it a target," said Briand Greer,
president of Honeywell ASEAN. "The summit today highlights the Honeywell Industrial
Cyber Security Solutions that are an essential component of a robust IIoT
ecosystem. I'm glad to see Malaysia addressing these risks right where it
matters with the people, process, and technology. As much as it is important to
digitize, it is equally important for the nation to minimize vulnerability to cyber-attacks,
improve recovery and ensure its leading industries don't lose view and
