​Engineering calculations typically require users to build software development expertise, or involve unmanaged calculation code with different engineers executing the same calculation inconsistently. Advanced Formula Manager (AFM) solves these problems by providing easy calculation development with a central platform for the storage and execution of engineering calculations.

Advanced Formula Manager provides a rich, high-performance engineering calculation capability for Honeywell’s Uniformance Process History Database (PHD). Calculations are built using a simplified Visual Basic script, helping engineers develop sophisticated calculations very easily using a minimum of programming skills. Its simplified format reduces the need for code with built-in functions for common tasks such as:

  • Reading and writing PHD data

  • Calculating averages and other aggregations

  • Validating data quality.

In addition to making calculation building easy, Advanced Formula Manager has the flexibility to support very advanced code. Advanced calculations may be used to include data from third party databases with PHD data, reuse functions from third-party dynamic-link libraries (DLLs) and build reusable custom functions that may be called from any AFM library.

​Advanced Formula Manager comes with a library of over 100 functions to ensure users don’t have to know complex programming techniques. In addition, it speeds up the development of new calculations by providing dynamic color-coded feedback on code syntax, proper use of built-in functions, and PHD tag validation. It also makes it easy to get input data from PHD without having to write any data access code. AFM calculation results are written to PHD tags, making them available for trending and reporting, alongside raw process and business data.

All AFM calculation libraries are stored on a central AFM server, ensuring that calculation code is available to everyone who needs it. The AFM server manages the execution of each calculation library at the user-configured execution intervals.

​Advanced Formula Manager provides a low-cost solution to efficiently convert large amounts of high volume PHD data into meaningful information. It simplifies the process of development and scheduling of consistent engineering calculations to help users avoid having to deploy expensive custom applications. It is flexible to accommodate user needs ranging from engineering calculations requiring minimal programming skills to advanced calculations.
