Honeywell’s Open Virtual Engineering Platform (Open VEP) service provides a secure, centrally hosted cloud environment to implement an off-process engineering and validation system. With Open VEP, testing and project execution can be done from anywhere in the world, on an automation system at any configuration and release.

Open Virtual Engineering Platform (Open VEP) is a service that offers a secure, centrally hosted cloud environment for automation engineering and validation purposes. From anywhere around the globe, a user accesses his or her off-process Experion systems at any release, configuration and size required. The Experion systems are readily available and fully functional including all licenses, removing the need for hardware and software purchase and on-site installation, and maintenance.​

The customer specifies the Experion system configuration in terms of type and number of Experion nodes, and the release of the system. As soon as the customer has signed up for Open VEP, the Experion system is populated as virtual machines in the Open VEP cloud environment. The Experion system is an off-process, fully functional system that offers all the rich features that are available with an Experion automation system.

At this stage, all stakeholders can interact within this common engineering and validation environment, regardless of their location.

The Experion systems are hosted and maintained by Honeywell. One or more systems at different releases can be provided.

The engineering platform is a high available platform implemented with the most advanced security standards. Included in Open VEP is a daily backup service, so no work gets lost. All required licenses are part of the service, including the operating systems, SQL CALs and Experion licenses. Specific database configuration or applications can be freely imported and installed on the system nodes, and a project can be moved from the virtual machines in Open VEP to an on-premises virtual or physical system.

In addition to reduction or eliminating time and equipment, Open VEP offers a number of improvements over an on-premises system:

  • No hardware purchase and software installation

  • Immediate start of engineering activities

  • Improved engineering, functionality and scenario testing

  • Easy access from anywhere by any stakeholder

  • Enhanced collaboration

  • Easy access by experts for troubleshooting, training or consultancy

  • Eliminating space, power, HVAC required for staging hardware

  • No hardware maintenance or refresh

  • No software patching and upgrades

  • High availability

  • Most advanced security at the highest standards

  • System scalability, including systems at different Experion releases

  • Free daily back-ups

  • Reduction of capital and operating expenses
