​A well-planned and executed control system modernization can not only improve plant asset availability and reliability, but can also enhance business performance and flexibility. Honeywell offers Control System Migration Assessment services to help users evaluate, prioritize and plan modernization projects. The services include outlining the project scope, conducting an audit of plant assets and preparing a roadmap for modernization.

Comprehensive Control System Migration Audit for Honeywell and Non-Honeywell Control Systems

Plants may need to migrate their distributed control systems (DCS) due to different reasons, including rising support costs of legacy systems, performance issues, obsolescence or simply, to adopt new automation technology and capabilities. Whatever be the reason, Honeywell’s control system migration assessment services help create a modernization plan that enables on-time, in-budget execution.

As part of the assessment, Honeywell experts conduct a comprehensive audit, which includes the following:

  • Executive summary with general recommendations

  • Selecting the right technology

  • HMI replacement

  • Ensuring operator acceptance

  • Controller migration

  • Third-party interfaces

  • Documented transition path, including phased approaches

  • Benefits of migration in terms of asset investment protection, reduced risk, and increased reliability.

​Assessments are vital to the success of any control system migration project. Honeywell’s approach enables a plant to create a migration plan that minimizes impact on operations while reducing risks and providing a roadmap to migrate to Experion PKS Orion. The latest edition of Experion PKS offers new features such as turnkey virtualization solutions and Universal Channel Technology to ensure faster project implementation and lifecycle investment protection. In addition, Honeywell’s global team of migration experts have extensive experience in evaluating, planning, scheduling and executing transitions from a range of both Honeywell and non-Honeywell legacy DCS.

​When legacy control systems can no longer meet corporate objectives, industrial organizations require a cost-effective migration approach to the next generation of control systems while causing minimum disruption to operations. Control System Migration Assessment services help users prepare for this change and chart a course that aligns to their specific site needs.
