Honeywell released improved versions of its two key asset management offerings and announced an initiative to help plant operators to more effectively implement reliability-centred and predictive maintenance programmes. 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-centred and predictive maintenance programmes.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 computerised 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. The newest Field Advisor tool has been refreshed to provide efficient automation for rounds and inspections.
