Turning data into actions with Industrial IoT (IIoT) concepts will be the highlight of the Honeywell Process Solutions’ 28th annual Honeywell Users Group (HUG) Conference for Europe, Middle East, Africa and India regions.
The conference, which began today, will have hundreds of Honeywell technology users participants from across the oil and gas, chemical, pulp and paper and metals and mining sectors. The agenda for this year will reflect upon the important challenges that the HUG customer-led steering committee sees for the automation industry.
According to Vimal Kapur, President of HPS, “Managing digital transformation for their operations is a question mark for a number of companies – how to use the Industrial IoT to increase production from existing assets and improving process safety, reliability, security and sustainability.” This is why there will be a number of presentations and panel discussions focusing on Industrial IoT during this 3-day conference.
Every day has been planned as per a theme. On the first day themed What’s Next: The Right Technology, Right Now, where the focus will be on how new technologies that are available today can drive gains in operational efficiency, productivity and ultimately revenue growth.
Find Opportunity: Win in a Volatile Marketplace is the theme fir Day 2. Participants will examine how to take advantage of technology and services to improve reliability, safety, compliance and productivity in a time of low oil prices, increasing globalization and political instability.
On the third day, when the theme is Embrace Change: Engage and Empower the Next Generation, participants will look at how the right environment, training and tools can unleash the power of the smart, tech-savvy and collaborative millennial workforce.
The conference agenda also includes a number of presentations and panel discussions from Honeywell customers Lukoil, Shell, Saudi Aramco, British Sugar, Sabic, Marathon Oil, and others. Presentations will feature topics such as cost-effective control system migrations, instrumentation, advanced data analytics and project execution, besides industrial IoT.
