""The manufacturing plant of the future will be more than just machine-to-machine connections; it will also connect data and people better and faster," said Darius Adamczyk, President and CEO, Honeywell Process Solutions. "Companies need to get to first production faster than before, they have to do more with less manpower, and they face increased safety and security threats. They need more than just our technology – they also need service consultancy, data visualization and analysis, and collaboration tools."
2014 attendees will experience a host of innovative technologies and get hands-on experience and training throughout the event. Highlights include:
- Honeywell's Experion® Collaboration Station, a large interactive display that uses video and telecommunications capabilities to remotely connect global experts.
- Technologies such as virtualization, alarm and operations management software, and cyber security presented in a series of Honeywell- and customer-led sessions.
- Roundtable discussions featuring topics that impact how manufacturers operate plants and deliver tangible ideas for improvements.
- New services designed to help customers ensure production goals are met by maximizing their automation investments and system performances.
"Turning raw data into knowledge has long been a strength of Honeywell's process technologies, and adding more comprehensive services brings a whole new layer of understanding to the equation," said John Rudolph, Lifecycle Solutions and Services, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Process Solutions. "More knowledge and a better understanding of how to use it will improve operations. The goal for HUG Americas 2014 is to give manufacturers tangible ideas for achieving their business objectives."
