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.

 

"Malaysia has been actively pursuing an Industry 4.0 agenda, particularlyin the manufacturing and oil and gas sectors, which have invested heavily in solutions that enhance productivity," said Nigel Brockett, vice president of Honeywell Process Solutions Asia Pacific. "The Honeywell technologies and solutions shown at the Malaysia Technology Summit will help them transform their operations and realize several benefits of digital transformation leading to increased plant performance."

 

Honeywell Connected Plant applications deliver higher levels of safety, reliability, efficiency and profitability. By combining deep domain expertise along with data analytics Honeywell enables its customers to get unprecedented insights into their operations. The seamless integration of process, assets and people across the enterprise can make every day the best day of a manufacturer's production and every member of the organization operate as a leading expert.

 

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.
  • Uniformance 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.
  • Asset Performance Management -- Integrates asset and process data for actionable insights to improve asset performance and plant profitability.
  • Immersive Competency -- 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 Safety -- This solution integrates with Honeywell's leading plant control system to protect workers and speed emergency response in case of hazardous leaks or worker injury.
  • Intelligent Wearables -- 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.
  • Experion® Batch - 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 manufacturers.

 

 "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 control."
