​Honeywell offers Integrated Automation Assessment (IAA) services to improve the baseline performance of installed automation systems through a consolidated audit. The audit covers evaluation of users’ Experion® PKS and TPS distributed control systems (DCS) against best practices as well as assessment of process control loop performance and benchmarking of alarm systems.

Comprehensive Automation Audit for Honeywell Control Systems

Integrated Automation Assessment services are available for all releases of Experion PKS and TPS. The IAA audit report includes:

• Executive summary with general metrics

• Control system performance

• Technology integration and synchronization

• Lifecycle planning

• Process control performance

• Alarm benchmark

• Safety systems audit (optional).

The audit report is a starting point for users to develop an automation roadmap and prevent reliability issues by rectifying future obsolescence through timely migrations and upgrades. It also enables them to improve process stability by correcting control loop performance issues and increases operator effectiveness through timely identification of alarm issues. 

Honeywell has developed a standardized process to evaluate the configuration state and performance of the main elements of users’ Experion PKS and TPS installations, including FTE network, operating systems, client server set up, HMI graphics, security updates and antivirus verification. The assessment also covers LCN and UCN network bandwidth and nodes capacity against recommended thresholds to assure optimal performance under all operational conditions.

In addition to that, the audit report also provides detailed information of the tuning performance of control loops and a benchmark of users’ alarm system in line with EEMUA recommendations.

​Integrated Automation Assessment delivers:

• Improved system reliability: About 5% higher mean time between failures (MTBF) and reduced corrective maintenance costs

• Enhanced automation system and operational performance

• Better lifecycle planning: 5-10% lower lifecycle costs.
